Hi Rick,
yes, yes, I know, I was plugging the player because it's so extensible and
it uses a playlist, but there's ways to use Apache to allow local
executables like livecode server (but not Joe Web User) to access
directories ABOVE the website root from script..... and if any 'address'
would be revealed, it would still be useless information as it would be
inaccessible from the web.

 I remember one of the first 'web apps' did this, it was called 'Gallery'.
All the photos were stored in a special directory above web root for a site.

I think the answer might be in here.

a htaccess file can do a lot of things, including allowing livecode server
to run in cgi-bin, another web-inaccessible place.

just throwing some things out there. I think the answer will be pretty
