However, mod_rewrite can be used to protect the service of Flash files against hotlinking because these are embedded in pages using the <object> tag and in this case the browsers do not send a referer when requesting the Flash file from the origin server.
This class provides an alternative solution that works by generating a access key that is used to compose the URL used in the object tag but it is only valid only during a limited period of time.
The class takes as options the location of server directory where is the file to be protected, a password and the limit of time during which the access key is valid.
When the class validates the access key, it serves the real Flash file if the key is valid, or serves an error Flash file otherwise.

|The unauthorized use of content of one site in another site is an activity that concerns many site owners.
Hotlinking is one type of unauthorized content use that consists in making pages, images and animations appear in one site despite they are being served by the site that really is publishing that type of content.
Hotlinking is problematic not only because it lets unauthorized sites obtain illicit merit for showing unauthorized content, but also because it may cause financial losses by making the owner site pay for the bandwidth to serve content for other sites.
There are solutions to prevent simple hotlinking by rejecting accesses made from unauthorized referring sites. However, these solutions do not work well for blocking hotlinking of Flash animation objects.
This class provides an alternative solution that works well enough for Flash animations embedded in Web pages dynamically generated with PHP.
