Is It Possible - Making WMA none recordable?

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by Alan Robinson, Jul 1, 2003.

  1. I have sound files that I want to put on a website that I want people to be
    able to listen to but not download.
    Is this possible with wma without going into the expense of Digital Rights
    Management.
    I do not have a Windows Media Server.
    Many thanks,
    Alan.

  2. No. If you do not stream them out of a streaming server,
    like WMS, but let the user fetch them via HTTP, then they
    are treated just like any other file. In this case your only
    hope to protect them from being copied is to encrypt and
    somehow tie them to the user and/or machine. DRM (which ties
    the files to the machine and uses a web-based remote
    verification) is there for you to make this possible
    otherwise you can just create your home-brewed system, which
    is not that difficult unless you want a complex protection
    (of course, you need to program).
