well, yes and no. even some sort of fancy drm won't work since someone can simply use screen capture software or even stick a video camera up their monitor, record the video and then upload it.

So, what you're asking is essentially impossible. You can, of course, watermark your video files if that will help?

It would seem a simple matter to include a bit of code at the end of the video
that will cause it and the computer it's on to explode after the movie,
taking the watcher with it. That will prevent him/her from uploading it.

The real answer, as others have said, is no. Just as you can't send somebody
a book or a picture, and prevent him/her from sharing it as he/she wishes, there's
no foolproof way to prevent video sharing. Once information is out of your
hands, it's out of your hands.
