Hiya there! You can simply add nodownload to controlsList attribute. Kinda like below:

 <video width="512" height="380" controls controlsList="nodownload">
    <source data-src="mov_bbb.ogg" type="video/mp4">
</video>

I hope this helped!

That seems to work for Chrome only, and a savvy user can download the video anyway using other resources.
