    Kevin_Boyd
      Whant to lock my QuickTime 6 Sorenson 3 videos so they will only play from Dir 10.1

      Been told by another developer this did not work well a couple of years back and caused major playback issues.

          I've been using it without problems for a couple of years on several
          projects. Compress the Sorenson video with a Media Key. Then in Director use

          qtRegisterAccessKey("Sorenson Media", "password")

          and

          qtUnRegisterAccessKey("Sorenson Media", "password")

          where you replace "password" with the Media Key you used during compression.
          You only need to issue those commands once per session (say startMovie and
          stopMovie) if you want.

          Probably not foolproof, but it keeps it out of the hands of the casually
          dishonest or ignorant.
