Hi,

what is the easiest way to stop people being able to download mp3's from a link (when they right click on the mouse you normally get save target as)

Thanks, Martin

Why would you give the path (link) to a mp3 file if you don't want people to click on it?
Could you give a url so we can see what you're actually trying to achieve? :)

If you want people to play the mp3 file on your website, but don't want them to download it to their hardrive, I would look into embedding the mp3 file in a flash file and put that on your website instead.

Hi,

thanks for the help. Here is the url here:

The MP3's are under the sounds section

Thanks, Martin

Did any of my questions in my last pst make any sense? If you're just linking to your mp3 files the visitor can basically do whatever he likes with them. Embedding seems to be the way to go.
