Identity management for video asset
A way to authenticate and authorize video content to the right people. Currently, video could be viewed by everyone.
And that should also work when using CDN
This is one of the drawback. Using CDN might not be a perfect solution, as the operation cost will be huge than what paid for media platform.

You can always create time-finite locators and them to your users. One locator per user.

I agree, this should be authenticate and authorize and not be related to DRM as that is not what is required.

Also, "use DRM" is not really a feasible workaround. Considering the DRM in question would be PlayReady, for which you need a significant up-front investment just to get the server license. Doesn't really fit in too well with the "pay as you go" type of service Azure offers.
