In theory it is possible to defend.
I would just be really careful about where you are going to get videos.
What kind of videos are you downloading.
If you are using a filesharing software or site, viruses are a given.
But if you are going to Youtube or something like that, there is no problem.
Stick to reputable sites.
Regarding Virus Protection:
All of them detect some viruses but most don’t detect all viruses. Norton full blown suite would be your best bet for protection, but it is also very bulky and system resource intensive. It will slow your computer down to a crawl.
My advice is just to watch where you are downloading from.
Ask on this forum first before going.
