i am using dreamweaver to create a website. in using dreamweaver, i know how to use a plug in and insert a video that way. i currently have a bunch of videos that are in windows media player format, but rather than just making links, and clicking on the video and viewing it from a webpage, i want to set it up so that users of the site have to download the videos to view them. anyone know how to do this, or could help me out at all?

Your request is unusual in that most websites want to prevent people from downloading files and block right clicking, or use other methods. You can disable either right or left clicking using Javascript, but with so many firewalls and virus scanners around, and other methods of blocking script, it may not always work. You can also just nicely ask people to right click and save as. Most people will do it if they know you don't mind them downloading your material.
