    Using htaccess to limit browsers access to website.


    Hi There,

    I have a website with a lot of video's in some of my directories people are trying to rip,

    I want to limit access to the video's by agent type, specificly Agent: NSV Player/0.0 (ultravox/2.0)

    I believe I can use the BrowserLimit var in Apache, but i'm not sure what the context is. Can someone help me out here?

    Thanks!

    Rich

    add this to your .htaccess file in the website root directory.

    SetEnvIf User-Agent "NSV Player" Banned
    Deny from env=Banned

    Will the ban the NSV Player, or ban everything else but the NSV player?

    I want to allow just the NSV player software, and deny browsers.

    Thanks.

    aha, I misunderstood ya before. Enter this in the .htaccess file in the directory or directories your video's are kept.

    SetEnvIf User-Agent "NSV Player" Allowed
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from env=Allowed
    Deny from all
