In general there is no way to prevent users from downloading the videos if they really want to, all they would have to do is go to the network tab and find the video url then save it.

Using the Premium player would allow you to serve HLS streams that are harder to download since the video is served in chunks. At that point you would have to have a really determined user to download all the segments and then stitch them together.
