    Hi there,

    I was wondering if there is anyway to protect a flash file from being "stolen" or used on another server. I will give an example. If on my site I have a flash movie that is being served from sparkgames.com/flash.swf what is to stop someone else on their own page and just doing something like this....

    Code:
    <embed src="http://sparkgames.com/flash.swf" width=550 
    height=400 type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
      </embed>
    Hope I made this clear...

    Thanks,
    Steve Klebanow

    When you publish your flash movie, select "Protect from Import".

    In Flash 4;

    Click File, Publish Settings.
    Grey pop-up box appears.
    Click the "Flash" tab at the top.
    Protect from import is third from the top.

    Hope this helps.

    Do you have the *.fla file? If so, just re-export it.

    If not, I think you might be able to import an *.swf file into a movie and re-export it with Import Protection turned on, but this is going beyond my knowledge of Flash.

    Try http://www.flashzone.com, ask one of the guys in the forums there.
