    Re: embedding media player url problem

    The only way around this problem is to use a true streaming server. This is a big step up in expense and complexity so I would only recommend it if you are absolutely convinced you need it.

    Of course, dedicated thieves can still steal your streaming content with various hacks. There's no way to protect your videos 100%.

    You will notice that more and more websites are putting a watermark on their videos for this reason. This is a small ID logo which shows where the video came from - then at least you can prove you originally owned it.
