Hi,
Thanks for your great products/services/support all the time.  
I have one simple question.
Is screencast.com using progressive download?

I do not want my content to be saved in viewer's PC. And I heard that progressive download would allow viewers to save cotents in their PCs.  

Can you please tell me what the situation is like for Screencast.com?  
Is there any way that I can avoid viewers to save my content to their PCs?  

Thanks!!

I don't know the answer to your question, but to what level do you not want them to save the contents to their PCs?  What I mean by that, is what would stop them from just using any video capture on their PC from recording your video (screen capture)?  Or would that be OK for you?

Thanks for your comment and I see your point. 
I guess that if a viewer try every "video capture software" on the earth with ill intent, he/she might be able to accomplishe what he/she wants to accomplish. 
My threshold is that if the streaming is NOT done by "progressive download", I'm OK and will take the risk.  Do you or anyone know if Screencast.com is or is not using "progressive download?"

Screencast.com sends chunks of data to the client when the media supports it (like FLV or MP4). I don't see how this would protect your content (or not) in anyway.

Like Greg said, any video you put on the internet can be re-recorded and redistributed.
