Securing URLs with Secure Link + HLS

Hi Paulo,

Very confused by the wording in the link I posted (my first post in this

"Here’s another example of a secured URL with expiration date, used to
protect both the playlist for a media asset and the segment files."

Which implies it is in fact possible, but alas the code does not work.

I've been pulling my hair out trying to solve this issue but no one seems to
know the answer. I think I might have to use my backend to serve the videos
instead of Nginx - I just figured Nginx would have much better performance.

Thanks for your response.
