Then you should replace your "little utility". There's a nice script in the
Debian repositories, it's called 'youtube-dl'. Command line. Pass it the URL as
an argument and it downloads every YT video. Similar scripts exist for files
stored elsewhere and it's generally not hard to extract video data from flash
streams. If it's on the user's screen it may just as well be on the user's hard
drive.

You can just make it *hard* enough, so that Joe average user won't be able to
store the file. You'll have to live with the black sheep though who will manage
to get around your obfuscation techniques.
