Ability to download private videos

  • Updated 6 months ago
I ́ve recently discovered a way through which people are easily able to download my embed videos even if I set my videos as private. When someone right-clicks on video embed in my websites and than he clicks on "Open video in new card", he will see a new video player with three dot button in right-bottom corner, which allows him to download video directly.  Does anybody know how to fix this?

That sounds like an application has installed a downloader utility on your computer. There are dozens of such video downloaders available. Realistically you can't prevent a determined user from downloading something they can stream.
