How to hide the flv link on youtube clone clipshare

If you have been using ClipShare you must be thinking this is a great video script, but there is one little problem that should have been found by those security freaks. I have noticed if you look at the sourcecode and find the flash file it would look like this.
Example:
http://videos.site.com/player/vConfig.php?vkey=75530d9583c34fd356ef
If you are to put that into the web browser and hit enter it will pull up a page with xml code that gives the name of the video, video url and everything. If you are running a video site you do not want this, because then the smart techy guys will start downloading your video files. With a little tweaking to a few files and a couple extra files added, you can secure the xml code so it cannot be seen.
They will only get a 404 error when they try to view the url above. If you need info on how to do this please email.
