Hello Listoids, I have a bunch of SWF files, just say at "http://www.domain.com/swf/". Now, I want my PHP script, eg, something like "http://www.domain.com/swf_me_up.php?filename=someswf" to be able to access these, obviously. However, I want to prevent people from simply typing in something like "http://www.domain.com/swf/someswf.swf" and accessing it directly (mainly because I want to extract money from them first, *rubs mercenarious hands*). I would've thought this would be quite a common desire, but I can't seem to find any ideas on how to achieve it. Plenty of examples of how to prevent "hotlinking", but evidently while this also concerns me, it's HTTP requests from my *own* domain that's the worry at the moment! Any help would be very much appreciated! Cheers and thanks.
