Download Only Accounts

I have a request that I'd like to see implemented if possible.  In Emby's settings in a user account, I've noticed that you have the ability to enable file download.  It would be really nice if you could also set up a check box to to prevent streaming, so that downloading is the only option.  This would be useful in the case where you have limited bandwidth or cpu power but still wanted to share collections of media with a remote family member.  This way they could download it, but not stream it.

Yes, I'm absolutely aware.  The difference is that someone who downloads it does so, hopefully only once.  In my case though it's the CPU that I need to save.  I run Emby in a vm with a lot of ram and cpus which does well but I have a gigabit internet connection.  So it is exactly the cpu time that I'm worried about.
