I want to restrict IDM or any such video downloader software to download videos from my site. Site is use to play streamed videos (Live as well as prerecorded).

The problem is that when I play video IDM start showing the download option to download the video.
How can I prevent this?
These videos are played in silver-light / media player.

Is there any way to stop from downloading?
I've tried a lot, visited lot's of sites over internet but none of it is useful.

Please help.

There is no way to prevent this. How are you going to tell the difference between the video playerr that normally plays your video and one that is saving your video?? (Hint: you can't!)
