You can of course dissallow linking with an htaccess file. so my other email, there is metadata that you can add that can prevent this. the simplest way is to script a movie to test against the url of the requesting page and to refuse requests from pages that don't match a specific text string. > >> Maybe we should create a highlight reel that shows clips of >> everyones >> video? > > If you create highlights-for-linking I will of course link to those > instead.

Just thinking... i'd suggest that linking to and from video is integral to vogging as a mature form. via rtsp this would be easier as you could serve 1'30" to 1'33" from a clip. with http streaming you can't do this (well you can via http but that's only with mirrors, it will still serve the first 1'30" just not show it). this means you will pay for it, but presumably the issue is not the bandwidth but a) knowing who is using your work, and b) that the use of the work is appropriately contextualised. the model is blogs and in blogs you either quote wholesale with acknowledgement, or link with acknowledgement. both are viable in video blogs. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
