Question ID: 780333
I'm using real player control in my music web site for audio and
video streaming. Can anyone explain me how to disable or remove the
context menu or just disable right click on the real player control so
users can not view media properties.

According to the RealPlayer documentation, found in the middle
of the following page under 'Controlling the Pop-up Context Menu':

"The context menu is normally enabled. To disable the context
 menu so that it does not appear when the right mouse button
 is pressed, use the SetEnableContextMenu method. By setting
 this method's parameter to false, the context menu is disabled.
 To reenable the context menu, set this method's parameter to
 true. To determine whether the context menu is currently
 enabled or disabled, use the GetEnableContextMenu method."

SetEnableContextMenu is further explained on this linked page:

Unfortunately, I've been unable to find a way to translate
this into HTML code that works to disable the context menu.

Hopefully you know more about this than I do.

You can also insert javascript code that will disable r-clicking
for the whole page in IE-based browsers, but Firefox and Opera
find their way around it:

Since I'm not able to verify a working method, I won't yet
post this as an official answer. If you manage to find a
way to use it, let me know...
