Anyone Use Rate Limiting For MP4 Streaming files

I have a lot of people on my site that use automated software to grab videos from my player in bulk. I was just curious if anyone has tried rate limiting to stop stuff like this. I did some tests with it and got some strange (to me) result. Some IP’s make over 2K requests to the same video. Some over 2K requests to multiple videos. Some make 10 requests and end up in the log, etc. Was just looking for pointers on anyone who may have tried this before.
