Use it this way:

url = "http://login:password@www.domain.com/file.mp3";
player2 = new Sound();
player2.loadSound(url, true);

If you have htaccess and modeRewrite available on your server, you may use URL rewrite from

http://www.domain.com/music/login/password/file.mp3

to

http://login:password@www.domain.com/file.mp3


Here is the rule for .htaccess:

RewriteRule      music/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/([^/]+)$      http://$1:$2@www.domain.com/$3

Don't forget to turn on mod_rewrite engine:

RewriteEngine      on

Damn, looks like this rule will simply redirect you to needed location. It may not work.

Maybe you have some PHP language here? So you can write your own program for checking login and password and giving the file?

hmm, don't work :), I think I will use php and send the username and password in the url like ww.domain.com/mp3.mp3?user=thing&pass=something... I think is the best way... I will leave this question open for some moment in case someone have any idea :) else I will give you the point the idea of php and loginpassword :)
