I wanted to protect lot of small videos so I subscribed to the free trial to try the service. As I wanted to use a personalized big play button I asked the support service to customize the player. They worked for me also during the trial period. DRM videos work perfectly on Firefox and Opera with HTML5. If you use IE a message appears saying you have to enable flash or use Chrome for HTML5. Videos are distributed using a CDN so they play inmediatly and very fluently. Of course you cannot protect your video from grabbing them with some screen recorder but you can discourage from doing it (and distributing your videos) by overlaying user's email or/and IP in a fixed or moving position and with a very low alpha if you want to make it imperceptible. If you search for "video protect" adding a plugin in WP, VdoCipher does not appear, I think it deserves more visibility. Very easy to sue.

No per month price plan. That's very bad. The "Starter" plan looks just strange. 500 GB, 2300 hours of streaming, two hundred bucks to go — is this a "starter"??? Why don't implement light plans for about $5-10 per month and 50-100 GB of video? Though the basic idea of the service is clean and good. =(
