Using Bunny.net as CDN host instead of Vimeo Pro

We've used Vimeo Pro to host videos on our Roku Channel (Fore Golfers Network) and have grown weary of paying their crazy fees.

Have any channel developers tried using Bunny.net as your CDN? The demo videos look promising but I can't find a single person who actually uses Bunny to populate your Roku channel...or an explanation of how the process works.

Re: Using Bunny.net as CDN host instead of Vimeo Pro

hi @Hobson_Media  , we don't use them - the pricing model they have make it very hard to predict a budget, we had clients using them then they move out  for the same reason ,  hart to predict. 

with CDN's the only thing is that it is not always easy to setup, and usually the support is ... not the best ... but on the bright side , once the setup is made properly you don't have any more issues for ..... years (in our case .....)

if you use skype , hit me up with a PM and i'll show you want we use and how to set it up properly - they do have the worst support i saw around but the best price and quality  - but if you make a setup properly you dont need the support .....  :)))))

@Hobson_Media@AaronMSpelling What did you end up using? I'm just starting out and researching atm. I can't seem to find a video hosting service that is under my budget, Vimeo, AWS, etc are kinda expensive for starts like me imo.

Re: Using Bunny.net as CDN host instead of Vimeo Pro

I ended up deleting my Roku channel. It's not worth the trouble and expense to deal with such horrid tech support and customer service. Roku seems to be a nebulous mystery company with no humans attached. The channel creation and hosting process is a nightmare and I decided it wasn't a wise use of my time. Our YouTube channel will suffice just fine.

Re: Using Bunny.net as CDN host instead of Vimeo Pro

Well, I ended up setting up my "own solution," but  - proper hosting will cost a bit  - unfortunately, free is not working for a tv channel - a minimum cost will be involved - if you want to offer a quality channel and experience that will have a price - about 10 - 20$/month  - quality should be your main concern and focus when you plan or build a channel -  better the quality higher the expenses ...

I think pcloud has a plan for 2Tb of traffic and space in the price range I mentioned -  but .... I wouldn't recommend using them for a long period - to start out can be a good solution
