block downloading of videos



I have remembrance videos on my website. Is there any way to stop families
from downloading the video? I just want them to be able to watch it, and if
they want a copy of it, they'll have to order it through my video guy. Is
there any way to stop them from saving it? Thanks!


Coming at the problem from another direction, why not let these
families download a short edited trailer video with sufficient
highlights to persuade them to buy the real thing? Tell them the
complete video is n minutes long and the file is way too big for
downloading. (Assuming it is, of course, as it must be if you're
hoping to charge money for it.) ;)

True. And like I said, if you stream it (the video-not a picture), you
can prevent them from "downloading" it (the video file in format to
reuse it on the their machine).

This is how news and tv stations present their video clips. Soem people
know how to capture straming video but the average user does not.

I have wondered about streaming. It seems to be what I could use, but how do
you set it up?
Is it dependent on your webste provider, or can anyone do it?

Again, here's one overview of the options.

Do a google search for jow to stream video.


I tried the method described here, and while it worked fine on my hard disk,
it doesn't on the web
The code is
<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
width="320" height="250"
<param name="src" value="images/">
<param name="autoplay" value="true">
<param name="controller" value="false">
<embed src="images/"
width="320" height="250"
autoplay="true" controller="false"

Any ideas?
