You have "the requests that you wish to allow as normal". You have "the
requests that you wish not to allow, since they come from this client".

What part of the request that nginx sees puts it into the "yes" or
"no" bucket?

Put that in your configuration, so that "yes" does what happens now,
and "no" returns a http error, or returns a different video inviting
the client to get your official app.

Perhaps their app uses a unique User-Agent header; or all "wanted"
clients do include a Referer header?

If you can't tell a "good" request from a "bad" one, you probably cannot
configure nginx to.
