As i recall there isn't any "protect movies from being downloaded to pcs or macs" option in Coppermine.

And besides that movies are mostly always downloaded to a pc or mac before they are run. So if someone wants the movie they just search in their temp internet files and filter out the correct files.

Hein is right, fiddling with things like kiosk mode is similar to silly "no right-click" scripts in JavaScript: this simply doesn't work due to the nature of the internet. If you want some protection for your video files, you'll have to stream them to the client (which coppermine hasn't been built for). "Real" streaming needs server-sided technology/settings as well (not available in "regular" webhosting packages anyway).
The answer given to users requesting anti-theft mechanisms for pics applies to videos as well: if you're afraid of content to be stolen, don't publish on the internet in the first place.
However, if you still think you need kiosk mode to "protect" your videos, you could ad an if/then switch that checks for the extension. If the extension is "mov", you could start a JavaScript that opens a new browser window in kiosk mode.
