#33 Keep songs from being downloadable

howto (22)

I was just wondering if there was a way to turn off the
download this song feature in the right click menu. If
you right click on a song, it brings a menu that gives
you the option to download. I am using this player on
a site I designed for an up and coming local band. I
want people to hear the entire song, but I want them to
buy the cd and not download it (gotta support local
music!) Is there any way to accomplish this?

    You can remove those lines from the .fla file.

    as previously mentioned, you have to remove those menu items from the AS file. Unfortunately, even if you do this, savvy users can easily download your tracks! All they have to do is type in the URL of the XML playlist and they will be able to see the track names and locations. There are ways to seal it up a bit better, so the name of the tracklist is not passed in to the player, and I have a version where I have done this, but it is still possible (albeit a bit more difficult) to download the tracks. This is just an unfortunate drawback of players like this that stream the content from a web site.
