    I have a streaming mp3 files and enable hotlink in Cpanel, will hotlink protect streaming file or just images?

    1. In the Extensions to allow, I put mp3.
    2. Allow direct requests: Yes

    Then I create a testfile.html, in that file I put <object>window media embeded code</object> and upload the file to different domain that not listed in "URLs to Allow Access" section. Hotlink doesn't seem to protect the file, I can play that embeded mp3 file from different URL.

    If I uncheck 2. Allow direct requests to No, the NOTHING is working, both my own site (in URL list) and test site (not in URL list).

    So would anyone please give me some tips? really really appreciate it.

    Ehh the hotlink protection is really for images only :-p, protecting a video can be a... difficult thing, maybe search around for HTA file permissions or somthing? But my main point here is, lol HotLink protection is for images,
