    disable download

    Hi guys,

    I'm creating a website where there is a jukebox type feature, using .wma files. I'm trying to lock it down so that people cannot download these files.

    Please take a look at what i've got so far:


    the thing with this though... the files are still accessable in the history and the windows address bar cache.

    please help me out with some script to block users from being able to download.... or a brand new better idea altogether.

    i was also wondering if it's possible to have users create their own playlist.

    thanks so much for your help!

    The only way to block them from being downloaded is to not upload them in the first place. Web browsers download all of the files needed for a web page before displaying the page.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
