    How to Load XML ( dynamic ) only if the request is from Flash player ???

    I have been working on a small flash based dynamic application ,where a
    dynamic text field loads data from an external xml file (data.php)
    which is generated dynamically with php - mysql , i want the external
    data.php file to load the data only if it is requested by the Flash
    Player only, and if not it should redirect the user ? Im stuck here can
    anyone help me out ?? Any other logics are welcome , i just want the
    data.php to be accesable only from Flash and not from the browser

    You should use a header to see which page the request comes from, and also send a $_POST variable with the flash request (containing a "password") and then check that also before displaying the content.

    Note though that if someone really does still want to see your xml file, they can, it will just take them a bit more work...
