I don't understand. Why are you hosting videos if you don't want people
to watch them?

That said, what you should do is constantly change your video URLs, so
that stored links to them become invalid. It is still easy to extract the
URLs and use them in e.g. SMIL, but it will not be possible for them to
become popular, so you will prevent the bulk of linking.
