How to protect your .MP3 from downloading in your OTT project

Securing your content is a crucial aspect, when it comes to downloading a media or a muti-media files from prying eyes of your users specially on an OTT based project if you’re working on to. Now this can get tricky and might cost you some money if you make up you’re mind in buying some plugins from third party vendors. The neat trick mentioned below helps for any .mp3 files or an .aac file, song which you want it to be secured and by no means want them to be downloaded by your clients or users/readers/listeners etc.

The code is mentioned below on my GitHub repo as well as screengrab here, now this is again for hard coded from scratch for OTT platforms only.

How can I fix apt error “W: Target Packages … is configured multiple times”? in Google Chrome for Fedora & Ubuntu !

This is what I’ve encountered recently at the time of writing that Google Chrome on Ubuntu and it’s derivatives could not be updated/upgraded via terminal or GUI, that is default package updater as seen in Linux !

The error’s can be any of these:-

W: Target Packages … is configured multiple times

E: Repository ‘http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome-remote-desktop/deb stable Release’ changed its ‘Origin’ value from ‘Google, Inc.’ to ‘Google LLC’
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.

Solution:-
It’s quite simple and straight forward in Ubuntu and it’s derivatives just go to
System settings >> Software and Updates >> Other Software and removing each duplicate entry from the list worked fine.
Note the below given screenshot can help and your mileage may vary depending on which OS you’re on.

Just somehow delete the duplicates as seen on the check boxes for Google chrome !

On Fedora just uninstall and reinstall the latest Google chrome package from the official Google’s website. Select a rpm package as usual.

Issue with Apt update error, Google Chrome on Ubuntu and its derivatives fixed + for RPM based distros too !

Howdy folks, take a deep breath for those existing(old version Linux users) people who wanna upgrade the Google Chrome browser via terminal. Here’s the fix. You might be getting this on your terminal command output :-

After the stable version 60.0.3112.90 roll along, Google changed key for Chrome Linux repositories. You can fix it by importing new repo key here (for Ubuntu users only):-

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

Now you should be able to update the system without any errors.

This works for APT-based distributions like Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives (Linux Mint, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc.)

Apparently even this should work well,

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 6494C6D6997C215E

&

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade

For Fedora based distros that is on a RPM-based system (Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva, RHEL, etc.), download the key and then use rpm to install it.

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
sudo rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub

You can verify the key installation by running:

rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-7fac5991-*

To manually verify an RPM package, you can run the command:

rpm --checksig -v packagename.rpm

That’s it

Permanently browse in “incognito mode” in Google Chrome – A How to !

Do you wish for a private secure browsing on the most popular browser on the planet “Google Chrome” which has a market share of about 58 to 60%, then look no further for all your safe shopping needs, online transactions and much more. The simple tutorial shown below would be of great help for all the Chrome fans out there.

Incognito in Google Chrome behaves like InPrivate mode in Internet Explorer. When browsing the Internet using Incognito mode with Chrome, your pages, browser and search history are kept private and won’t be traced back to you. Cookies and other temporary Internet files are deleted when you close your browser.

Let’s get started, first we need to go to the desktop or any location were the Google Chrome shortcut is saved and then we just need to right click the icon and go to properties and just add the line as shown below:-

–incognito command switch to the end of the line. It should be:

"C:Program FilesGoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe" -incognito

 

incognito_chrome-windows_2

Voila that’s it you’re done and every time you open your Chrome browser you are into the private browsing mode.

Njoy !
