I'm using RoboHelp Classic 2019 to create Responsive HTML5 help. I've inserted a video (MP4). Is it possible to embed it into the help in a way that users will not be able to right-click and save it or download it?

Hi there

 

Seriously, the only surefire way to prevent this from happening is to never present the video via the web. If folks are determined, they WILL get the video. If not by downloading directly, they can use screen recording software to capture the video and audio as it plays.

 

Any other steps that may be taken such as disabling right-click or whatever are just very mild roadblocks that are easily bypassed.

 

I'll be very surprised if anyone else pops in to offer a foolproof solution.

Captiv8r, you are correct. RoboHelp support got back to me that RoboHelp doesn't provide this functionality.
