    A way to watch movies only online not to download them

    Hi everyone,
    Can you tell me how to make visitors of my site only to watch movies online not to download them?

    You can check here. I use their MP3 player and it has an option to not allow downloads. I'm not sure about the videos.

    Just a heads up, no video or audio you get off the net is "not downloadable"
    You can only make it harder.

    Actually there is a way that the Wimpy Player does it:

    "Streams binary mp3 file to wimpy.swf by passing the file through PHP. This prevents mp3 files from being cached on end users computer."

    Thats great, but just fire up a program like Audacity, set the input to "Stereo Mix" or "Wave Out" depending on your machine, press record then press play.
    Poof, mp3.

    Now, with video it is harder since wmp and the like can write directly to video memory, but most of the binary stream formats for video have been reversed. I point you to the MMS devouring SDP among others.

    My point here is if it is played back on your local machine, then the content can be captured. The best you can do is encrypt it. For audio, there isn't even much point to that. You just inconvienience (sp?) the pirate

    Ah, yes, but that is recording, not downloading in the cache. In that respect, you're correct. Anything can be recorded.

    The difference seems academic to me, its just adding one more piece of pipe for the stream of bits to pass through on their way to the hard drive.

    Regardless, content is never safe once it's sent.

    I only say it because the general Internet user is not savy enough to know about the recording aspect so it's just another "short-term" stop gap measure.

    I always paraphrase the Las Vegas commercial: "Whatever is placed on the Internet, stays on the Internet." In other words, once you place something for others to see/hear/watch, it will never go away. There is always a cache version in the search engines or on the wayback archive. And there are always ways to copy or record what's out there. But it's the same in the physical world also. If somebody wants something bad enough, they'll get it.
