Hello, Im creating a music player using flash. As it stands an xml playlist is created by a php file and this is read by the music player. However, I need to be able to store the actual mp3 files securely on the server so they cannot be direclty downloaded via a url link, etc. (The reason being that the song files are not free to download) Is there anyway to do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance, Darren

There are dozens of ways of doing that. Encryption, authenticated downloads, streaming, etcetera. All of them are relatively easy to work around for someone with enough skill to hack themselves out of a wet paper bag.

What music are you trying to protect? If it's the kind of content that can be found in a torrent, SSL and basic authentication should be enough.
