How to Disable the Right-Click in an Embedded Real & Quick Time players

P: 1

I have included an embedded Real Player and an embedded Quick Time
Player for streaming videos, in my web pages.

I'm interested in searching for a method or a script to disable the
right-click option in the embedded Real & Quick Time players, because
I don't want the viewers to download the video but to view it while

I will be very much grateful to you if you could kindly help me in
finding a method or a script to disable the right-click in embedded
Real & Quick Time Players.

The embedding code -

  7. </object>
I think this can be done by adding a new parameter I'm testing on it,
hope I'll get a good response with an answer from you!

Thank you.

Hi Dilshan. Welcome to The Scripts!

I'm going to move your question from the PHP forums to the HTML forums, where it is more likely to get answered.

The only way to disable right click is with javascript so I'll send you there.

hi ...

you may do that with javascript but it is one of the most annoying things you may do on a webpage, because you override the standards behaviour of the mouse ... it is against all simple usability rules ... so please don't do that. however in case you want to do it anyway ... you have to capture the event and ask for its detail ... a google search with 'disable right click javascript' will give you a lot of copy and paste scripts to achieve your goal ...

kind regards
