Streaming Video in the 3D View


#1

Hi,

I was doing the Streaming Video in the 3D View tutorial, and it worked using the tutorial video link: https://ddg67ecygv8rc.cloudfront.net/ZapBoxTutorial/ZapBox1200.mp4

I want to usa a YouTube link insted of the one in the tutorial, but it doesn’t work.

The link i want to use is the following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgCcECsuXJQ&feature=youtu.be

Hi @redemprendeya,

The URL needs to link directly to a video file as opposed to one uploaded to a video hosting site such as Vimeo or YouTube. The server hosting the video file also needs to support range requests in order for the video to play properly across all devices. We recommend using a CDN for faster, more scalable video serving e.g. AWS CloudFront or CloudFlare.

Hope this helps.
