Retaking a part of a previous post on how to limiting or hampering that 3rd parties download a video, this is what was mentioned so far:

If you are using PHP, the best way is to control it the .htaccess, you need to put your files, images and videos under consideration in a separate folder/directory, and create a new .htaccess file in this directory with the below:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} \.(mp4|mp3|avi)$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://sample.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^.* - [F,L]

The first line %{REQUEST_URI} will prevent getting the file through the web browser or through curl. The second line %{HTTP_REFERER} will prevent accessing the image/video using HTML tags <img> or <video> from any website except the exception ! you provide instead of http://sample.com/ which usually should be your website itself.

You can also have a look at my question and the accepted answer here for more tricks on the browser side.



Create a new php page and add the packs (UserSpace01) to your site to manage password protection.

I found another solution to prevent download:

Add the following code in an html code block in header position

<body oncontextmenu="return false;">

And protect your page with a password by using the packs as I mentioned earlier

So, the page is not going to be protected (hosting does not support SqlLite), but I'd still would like to make a bit difficult to viewers to download the video (and/or embed it if we can apply a solution to this too)

Hobby001.

You did mention "html code block in header position"
This is to say, in the same page (video)?

Also, Both in Chrome and in Edge, the controls of the video window includes a menu with the download option. Any possibility to stop that (other than excluding all the controls with the option of the HTLM 5 interactive package)?

Works like a charm in FF, Edge, Chrome and Android. Have not tested in Safari or iOS
