    Question How does NBC5i do it? (JSP, Video streaming, framesets, iframes)? Help appreciated!

    Hi all,

    In a few months I plan to embark on a moderately big project involving audio, video and ads streaming.

    For the record, I have (intermediate) experience in PHP, MySQL, Oracle RDBMS, Java2 and minor C and C++.

    Although, I have zero knowledge about JSP, so I need some help here..

    I like to learn by example, and NBC5i's "feedroom" has caught my interest.

    (I've divided the thread into sections to make it less confusing.)

    Go to http://nbc5i.feedroom.com/frameset.jsp .

    You'll notice that you cannot right click anywhere inside the window except for the outer edges.

    I thought, okay, JavaScript right-click killer. So I clicked (IE) "View --> Source" but it shows me that the page contains four "iframes", no JavaScript there, and absolutely no content.

    From the iframes, I can see that the addresses are as follows:

    Go ahead and view the sources for all four pages. No JavaScripts!

    So how did they disable right-clicking?

    The second intriguing thing is that none of the iframes pointed to a "real" page with real content, giving the first one an exception since it shows the navigation panel.

    But where is the video stream page? That's exactly what I wanted to find out, yet it was nowhere to be seen!

    Can someone explain to me what is going on here?

    What I was trying to do, FYI, is find out what streaming they are using (WMV or RM), if they are using a different streaming service like RBN and also if I was able to download the streams, or if all I could download was a stream file (you know, those 200+KB files that still require you to connect to the net, thus a stream).

    Off topic, but could anyone lead me to any links or tips regarding cooking up my own stream-capable website just by using pure PHP or JSP coupled with databases and not having to buy streaming software which costs US$2000?

    I'd like to stream RealVideo and RealAudio.

    The help would be greatly appreciated. I hope to see some helpful advice and/or answers soon..

    Thanks and cheers!
