I own a music webpage where users can listen to some free
music. The thing is that I'm trying to create a 30 seconds preview
player, and I made it work. (code @
The problem is that after those 30 seconds even after
stopping the sound and the movie the flash movie keeps receiving
the whole song, so for each preview I receive the 100% of the mp3
song, this is a huge and non-sense loss of bandwidth as I only need
those 30 seconds.
My question is if it is possible to stop the stream or stop
receiving the data somehow.
My other problem with this is that to load the mp3 song I
have to put the url of the xml file that contains the path to the
file in the ActionScript code, so anyone with basic knowledge in AS
can download the songs from the server.
Is there any other way to protect the path or prevent
downloading those mp3 files?
