a client has an ebook for teaching guitar that includes hyperlinks to online videos in the .wmv (windows media video) format.

we are wanting to make these as secure as possible. is there a way to hide the url from coming up in the properties box of windows media player? im assuming there is no way to include a password on a windows media video. is there a way to block someone from just typing in say arandomguitardomain.com/videos/lesson-01.wmv? would creating a asx playlist or someother playlist have any advantage?

Any comments, help or suggestions would be appreciated. Im just wanting to see what options are out there.

Thanks :)

the only way to really protect a wmv file is by using the windows drm... you can sort of hide the actual wmv filename and location in a wsx file, but there are a bunch of free apps that can record the video stream anyway.

you can buy x number of drm licenses from a drm server, for maybe as cheap as $25 a month?
