SharePoint - Limit Right-Click Save As Option

Howarth, David 20 Reputation points

Company has returned to MS and started to use SharePoint. Whilst it a wonderful piece of kit, is there a way to block the downloading of video files via the right-click method?

Have managed to remove/ block the option from within SharePoint menus. However a user can still right-click on the video and download via the Save As method.

Posted on the MS Community were a reply mentioned about 'customization using the script'?

    I understand that you would like to block the Save As feature when right-click on the video opening in the browser.

    Unfortunately, there is no customized script to block the Save As feature when right-click. That's because it is what browsers were designed to do. It is not controlled by SharePoint.
