Hi,

 

I have a video uploaded in OneDrive and want to prevent the video to be downloaded by the user from the share link. I realize the 'Block Download' button is only available for Office applications (word, excel, powepoint).

 

How can I block the download for a video file? Please help. I need to get this solve asap. 

Google Drive has the ability to prevent video to be downloaded, however it takes forever for the video to be processed by their side.

Hi @nia_val,

 

Block Download for other file types is a feature that the team is actively working on and should be available in the near future. Keep an eye on the M365 Roadmap and Message Center for more details! Thanks!
