This will check if the file is being served from you domain:

if ( _url == "http://www.yourdomain.com/filename.swf" ) {
    // yes it is
} else {
   // no it isn't
}

To make this work replace "http://www.yourdomain.com/filename.swf" with the full url to your swf (including the quotes)



You will also need to make sure the swf isn't being hot linked from your server....

import flash.external.ExternalInterface;
var url = = ExternalInterface.call( "function(){return document.location.href;}" ).toString;
if ( url == "http://www.yourdomain.com/containerpage.html" ) {
    // yes it is
} else {
   // no it isn't
}

To make this work replace "http://www.yourdomain.com/containerpage.html" with the full url to the page holding your swf (including the quotes)

That should be...

import flash.external.ExternalInterface;
var url = = ExternalInterface.call( "function(){return document.location.href;}" ).toString();
if ( url == "http://www.yourdomain.com/containerpage.html" ) {
    // yes it is on your own page
} else {
   // no it is not on your page
}

That wont stop users hotlinking to your swf. This will...

var url = ExternalInterface.call( "function(){return document.location.href;}" ).toString();
if ( url.indexOf("www.yourdomain.com") == 7 ) {
    // yes it is on your own page
} else {
   // no it is not on your page
}

If you have subdomains you'll need to have seperate if statements for them too.
