quicktime streaming export WITHOUT download option
on Sep 13, 2008 at 2:14:42 am

Hello,
I am exporting a quicktime file to play on the internet but I do NOT want web users to be able to download my file (by clicking 'save as quicktime') ... does anyone know how to export/upload a quicktime so that that option is DISABLED for end users?

THX!! :)

Nothing will prevent a determined person from grabbing your movies unless it is actually streamed from a streaming server.

As a normal http download movie, a copy is stored in a temporary place on the hard drive, but a savvy user will know how to find it.

There are a couple of ways to make it hard for the casual user:

1. Use the 'kioskmode' EMBED tag in your web page. This will remove the "Save As" feature, e.g.



or

2. Open the movie in Quicktime Pro. Go to Movie Properties, Select the 'Presentation' Tab and set the 'Movie Controller' type to None. Obviously this will completely remove the movie controller but all the keyboard shortcuts will still work.
