Anyone using Amazon S3 to host their videos? We currently host all our videos on our VPS. We have a lot of videos on our Amazon S3 service. When we try to add the Amazon URL links (in our XML files), they don't work.
S3 works just fine for me. Have you set the bucket permissions to allow for public read for GETs and optionally, LISTs? Once you've done that, there is nothing unusual about their generated urls. However, If your content must be only accessed by pre-authorized users, you'll need to add code to deal with S3's unique authentication scheme as well.
