Web DRM is a joke anyway. Just play the video in fullscreen and turn on your desktop recording software (ShadowPlay or whatever), done.

Where's your fancy DRM now?

Compressing already compressed video will cause more quality loss.

This is the same reason people to not copy bluray movies via HDMI(rip the disc instead), but the standard still has to be laced with DRM.

Some of this causes more issues for paying users than it ever does for pirates.

I am not saying I am against all DRM(to protect ones work), but it does get in the way of legitimate uses too often.

Web DRM needs to disappear. Period. Adobe Flash for everything but games needs to disappear as well and even for games, HTML5 games could take over for Flash games if properly written.
Basically the only reason they want DRM support in browsers is so they can control what people do with their own legally bought content.
They want to prevent people from legally recording that content so that they can pull that content at any time and charge the people in question AGAIN for the content in question.
