I don't know of that being possible, unless they are a proprietary format that will only play on their specific player which requires internet connection..

 

Could you provide an example please?

Yes I could. I'm talking about adult entertainment videos. I aksed site's support does their downloaded videos work after my membership has expired, they answered: no.

Then I started to think how they can make these videos not working after that.

Those look like standard vlc video files, no internet connection needed while watching.
