You could also use drm if your video files are flash (flv)

freeware: http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/freeware/2008/08/28/flash-ownerguard/

You could also offload the hosting of the videos to save money spent
on bandwidth

"As a SteadyOffload subscriber you can define URL filters. If the
offloaded URL doesn't match any of these filters, the request is
halted with the "URL Filter Mismatch" error status."
The big draw about steadyoffload is that you pay only for bandwidth
actually used - unlike in S3 where you would pay every month even if
you used it or not.
