    I am having a hard time trying to hide the video source of embeds on my site in a way that noone from the front end reading the source or inspecting elements would be able to be able to find the location where it is hosted.

    I am working on a streaming site and badly need help on this. I would really appreciate inputs. If it costs a bit i am ready to pay to get this info too.

    Please do help.

    JWPlayer, videojs and all players videos is possible get the link with javascript console. For hide link you need stream video file in chunks. e.g shaka player from google.

    why don't you disable right mouse elements for the site, it'll at least reduce the number of pirating elements

    Is this subject still open?

    Another option would be to sign URL, but requires some CDN like Amazon Cloudfront or to actually serve the stream via a script that adds this kind of logic.
    Then if wouldn't matter if they knew the path when you need to add a signature that expires in x hours, like: /video?sign=fd3o2ndi34tbni34h2br34321f1erf34fsd

    This could help solve the problem of somebody wanting to stream directly off your site, if no efforts are done from their side to actually capture a working signature.
    It wouldn't limit an actual valid download.

    Maybe there are some directive that prevent including on other sites?

    Not much that you could do apart from obfuscating the url in some way, but not much chances because the video tag needs it in clear on the client side, where the "enemy" is, so you'd also be providing the solution to unobfuscate the url yourself.
    :)
