Is it possible to block somebody from downloading a YouTube video? I don't want people stealing my videos.


It's not possible with YouTube, but you can try the following:

  • watermark your videos (don't overdo it)
  • make the video private and share the link only to people you trust
  • try another video sharing service that encrypts the streams so they can't be easily captured/downloaded
  • 1
    There are tools to record whatever is playing on your screen. So even if the stream is encrypted, it can be re-recorded with a lower quality though it can't be downloaded
