    I noticed that when one is viewing the front end of an album page, if they click on one of the tracks (the ones that were uploaded in the ‘Edit Album’ admin panel) each one will open up that respective mp3 in the browser with the URL as ending in “…song-title.mp3” and at that point it’s able to be downloaded by anyone…how can I prevent the individual tracks from being downloaded like that? Is there a way to have the tracks uploaded and playable in the browser without giving away the file to anyone who tries to dl it?

    I know there are plugins for this sort of thing, but if there’s a way to do it without having to bring another plugin into the picture I’d rather do that and keep it simple…most of the plugins for audio embeds are kind of ugly…and styling them just takes more time (which I don’t have much more of)
