How can I restrict downloads of my videos?

Hello everyone, I am the website administrator of, the Chinese community for TiDB. I would like to ask for your advice on how to restrict video downloads. I want both visitors and registered users to be able to watch the videos, but prevent them from downloading them.

I’m not aware of any plugin that will allow seeing anything that can’t be downloaded. That’s why sites like YouTube and vimeo exist, so you’d need to develop an application like those and then integrate it with discourse. See Video Upload to YouTube and Vimeo using Theme Component if YouTube or vimeo are an option.


I get it , thanks for your help
