How is it possible to protect the download of the video with JWPlayer?

I know i dont have the right button option to "save video as..", but for view purposes, the browser downloads the video itself correct?
In this case it would be 360º video (VR) so the screen capture software wouldn't work.

Anyone knows how to correctly avoid the download of the video, to get some insights?

There are admittedly very few ways to prevent this, as MP4 videos will usually appear directly in the browser network requests or those file download plugins. HLS streams make this a little more difficult for the plugins, but still not impossible.

If you really think about it, the problem is more about how content is shared on the internet, as you have to be able to link to the video in order to make it load in the browser, so this is not something that I think is easy to solve.
