It should be (though not tested) but you will have to pass the username and password in the url to zms. You could use the an authentication string instead but you will have to make sure you use the same method as ZM in building it.

If you don't have authentication switched on in ZM at all then you should be fine, just copy the URL that the web page uses (use 'view source' to find it).

Yes, potentially. The other alternative is to create a user with only stream 'view' privileges and pass that users detail to zms. Then even if anyone logs in all they'll be able to do is watch the streams anyway.
