    Delete cached movie clips

    I have embedded RealPlayer in a page, and it seems to be working Ok, but the problem is that it caches files downloaded from our site; we don't want our users to move and/or copy cached files. Is there any way to prevent this? When I watch movie clips at Apple movie trailer site, all cached files (QT files) are deleted as I close browser or QT. This is the kind of feature that I'd like to implement. Any idea?

    There are a couple of ways, but they're not fool-proof. Don't know how Apple do it, but there's a 'nocache' META tag for Internet Explorer only....

    Also, I think if you load a movie into a movie like a lot of those sites do, it won't cache cos it's effectively not in the browser any more. Don't know about that though.
