    I do not know what you mean with "your friend can view". When he can view the contents of a file, he can copy it. Because on a computer viewing is reading and copying is reading. And when reading is possible, you can copy it and view it (when there is a program that understands how to format it on the screen).

    And I have no idea why you think this question has anything to do with Networking (and by extension to the Internet).

    This will be moved to Applications and is CLOSED for the moment.

    hello

    thank you for move to application.
    then
    i know it's impossible "not-copy file" so i wanted to know as sure information... then this technique is impossible for now right?

    now i will explain you precise informatio that why i want to protect to copy:

    my job NLE with opensuse, after rendered and i give my friends(teachs) to use my video in classroom for to teach, some case: teach wants to copy and give other teach (teach is not our job group) this mean i need a protect my files. so i think about you forum opensuse they have any idee for how protect "NOT-COPY"..
    there is other way type how protect file?

    for NOW we use PENDRIVE (NTFS:because bigger size of file single) this i want to try how protect file..your reply means is impossible protect "not-copy"..

    for FUTURE we will install server-storage with EXT4 and connect to TV this means all teachs can't to copy..this i know for SERVER-STORAGE is SURE with OPENSUSE but
    for NOW with PENDRIVE is not SURE for US..

    i waint..who GENIUS will able for how protect "not-copy".

    sorry for my english..
    and do you undy that what i mean to say you ok?

    thank you for moved this topic and RE-OPEN STATUS thank you

    thank you

    This is possible in the Windows side of the world, IIRC. Or it is with
    copy protection schemes. Nothing that we can do in Linux about it.

    For example, it is what DRM does, no?

    There are methods in windowsworld, in the enterprise, to control who
    reads the documents you write. You can "publish" a document, and when
    the recipient gets it, the reader asks for permission somewhere before
    opening it. And it is not simply a password.

    I think that adobe reader can do that kind of thing, but I have never
    actually seen those things in use.

    if none of the teachers have or know about ext4, then that alone
    would make it difficult (to impossible) for them to copy..

    maybe.
    you could encrypt it for transport and then decrypt for showing but
    then you (or a trusted agent) would have to be at the showing to
    decrypt AND show on a screen you control *or* make sure the projector
    includes has no way to copy..

    hello

    thank all for reply.

    uhm.. i undy..
    for way EXT4 this is very best way but.. sorry i'm forget add information that you dont know, then now i show you schema:

    this is REGOLAR TEACH ( teach does legal to use)
    file video and image >>>save in >>>pendrive NTFS USB >>> connect USB to TV (there is usb)>>show video and image

    this is IRREGOLAR TECH ( teach does illegal to use)
    PENDRIVE NTFS USB >>> connect USB to PC (win or mac or linux) show file manager (explorer or finder or dolphin or nautilus)>>>> COPY to harddisk
    then ADODE PDF are not standard this mean TV is not supported, also method of encrypt and decrypt TV is not supported..

    then my idea best is:
    file video and image>>> save in server-storage>>> connect cable LAN or WLAN >>>connect to miniPC (example, MK808B, raspberrypi,etc..) with NFS (linux) can use XMBC configuring..>>>connect cable HDMI >>>TV
    i think this is best wa, or not?

    thank you!!

    if it works, and keeps your file secure--then, USE what works..

    makes no difference if it is "best" or "worst", always use what
    works. (even if you have to use Windows, or Mac or whatever...use
    what works)
