MessageI didn't think this is even possible with anything. If one puts up a 
link to an m3u file, all the person has to do is right-click and hit save as, 
look at the text in the file, and put that address in to directly download.

  Hi Andy - Why would you want to do this? From a usability point of view, it 
isn't always pleasant to have to sit in front of a computer to listen to files; 
I would much prefer to listen to them on another device. Indeed, I find that I 
almost never make use of streams that cannot be downloaded, so it is likely to 
repel some of your visitors. Of course, it depends on the actual content: for 
instance, books must never be streamed (what if you wanted to stop halfway and 
then resume a few days later?), whereas music seems more workable this way, as 
does live content. -Graham.

  I have to stream mp3 files from an 2.0 website. I am trying to figure 
out how you can let any visiter to the site play them but not download them. 
Most of the examples out there show how in flash, but is there another way?
