Password protect video with GFP-Crypt tool
Password protect video
Well there are videos or audio files you really like to keep private.
The easiest way to protect your video files with a password is to use the GreenForce-Player.
GreenForce-Player is a portable freeware alternative media player with multiple functions. It can play video files, audio files like mp3 and it is also possible to protect media files. It has a cache system that is used to reduce usage of your hard disc which can extend the battery life of laptops. All together, a must have alternative media player for windows.
In the GreenForce-Player you can encrypt the media files individually, but if you need to encrypt more files you can use the Crypt-tool which is included in the SDK.
The Crypt-tool also allows adding all multimedia files into one executable. So you can convert your audio and video files to standalone EXE files. This has the big advantage that the GreenForce-Player Software is not needed for playback then.
To encrypt you must start the tool "GFPCrypt-GUI.exe" from the GreenForce-Player SDK.
To add files you can use "Add file" for one file or you can use the button "Add folder" to add a complete folder. After this the items will be added to the list below.
If you added a file then you can double click on the item to change the tags of the file (Interpret/Album/Title/Cover).
At the bottom of the main window you can set the password (encryption key), the output folder.
If you want to create only one executable with all multimedia files, then you can use the option "Include all files in one player executable". In this case it is also possible to set your own icon for the executable.
To create the encrypted files you have to click on the "Encrypt" button.
If you used the option to create an executable you get a file like this:
Test the created file
Now you can start this new standalone executable with a double click.
You get directed in the Cover flow; there you can select the Video/Audio you want to see.
To play the file you only have to enter the right password.
