CDN Expiry and Token

well, it's a bit difficult to restrict who can get that link.
I guess the key would be to keep the link private and, if it gets leaked, then you can always change the URL so it becomes unknown (maybe even considering changing the URL every few hours?).

I have a few video files on the cdn that i want to stream. Currently the links are all direct links without any form of expiry or token system.

E.g http://static2614.ovhcloudcdn.com/v1...ault/video.mp4

My concern here is that other people might hotlink the file to their own site at the expense of my traffic. Is there any protection against such problems?

Please Advise.
