Undownloadable online video
Posted 02 July 2008 - 01:35 PM
A friend of mine asked whether it's possible to put videos online that can't be downloaded (just viewed). While we obviously can't stop capturing programs (can we?), it seems like it should be possible to have some kind of encryption that prevents replaying streaming content. Does anyone know such technology?

It might be possible to put the avi into a flash and have the flash do some checking so it will only play the avi when needed/allowed. But still, if you figure out how it’s done you would be able to reproduce it and download the avi again.
However, why would anyone want to put a video on a webpage (where everyone can see it) but not wont people to be able to download the video? What good would that do?

Anyway, I was already preparing to tell her it's practically impossible... :closedeye
Tips and tricks to make it a little harder to download things are still welcome though!
