    I have a couple of MP3s (don't worry - totally legal!) that I need to stream as background music to a band's website. i.e. having a little player interface where it plays them at the bottom.

    I was wondering how I go about doing this and just as importantly, hosting the MP3s but disallowing direct downloading of the files.

    Thanks for any help,
    William

    The easiset way to do it would be to use Flash.

    You could have a small movie at the bottom of the page, just with stop and start buttons.

    There is no way to allow listening to the mp3s without them being able to be ripped. Even embedded in a Flash file the mp3 could still be extracted from the swf.

    Good point, it's possible to record anything that plays through your computer.

    But average Joe probably wouldn't have the know how to do it. It's not hard, easy to do with free software.

    If you want to do it Flash is proably the safest way.
