Prevent users from downloading your Google Drive videos

Kudos to Steve Douglass of Lake Forest High School for showing me this one – if you want to post/embed a video stored in your Google Drive, you can do this AND prevent users from downloading your video at the same time. You might not need to do it often, but it’s a neat trick. Simply access the video in your Drive (and you must be the file owner for this to work), select the details button on the right side of the screen, click on details and scroll down until you see the box that says prevent users from downloading. Check that box, and you are all set.
