you can make php script that reads the media file and it's sending it to the user

something like this

1. you have the movie.wmv
2. you have a php file that verify it fty file must be read (direct access or correct access)

3. the script after validation has to echo the corect headers ex:

header( 'Content-Type:video/x-ms-wmv' );
readfile( $file );

like this the media player will show the php script and not the media that it's playing
