it can be lifted by decompiling your swf.
Thanks for that information!
So what is the best way to stream it so it will play, but so it cannot be lifted?
use an fms or redhat server.
Something to consider is that if someone is determined enough to decomp a swf to get a song, they will likely be determined enough simply to record the live playback. So given that, I personally wouldn't go to to much trouble to try and keep it from being lifted. At most I'd probably load it from an external source as a random file type -- such as instead of 'mysong.mp3' id name the file 'googleAnalytics.data' or something else that would deter at least the most basic decoompiler-kiddies. You can also look into flash obfuscation applications. Some add a few bytes that crash decompilers, but thats gotten around as well.
Bottom line, there is no way to completely protect anything you allow to be played on a client computer. You can at best make it difficult.
