How to disable a "File save" download
Does anyone know how to allow a user to watch a video on a website, but not have the ability to save the video? We have a site that needs users to view proprietary information, but not have the ability to save the .mpg file on a computer. Is there something on the server end to secure a .mpg file from being saved? -Shannon
Without the know-how how to do this in html // java // php... I was thinking of using a flash based solution.
Create a flash file, give an actionscriptcode to load a movie (your .mpg) and create a few buttons (play, stop, pause).
They can't see the name of the mpg which is loaded (...well nothing is safe if they really want to ofcourse) and in the source code of your html the only see a .swf coding.
Just a thought.
Thanks for the idea. I'll give it a try! -swep
