Can I show video in Confluence OnDemand while storing it on a separate server?

Since there is a limit of 25GB in AOD can I store a video on a server and link it to display in Confluence OD?

Can I have it embedded or will it just be a link to the video on the server?

What we typically do at Atlassian is upload the video to YouTube and mark it as unlisted video. Then copy and paste the YouTube link into Confluence and voila! - it automatically converts it into an embedded video. There are no storage fees, it's a nice player and no one else can see the videos...only people with the video link or people who can view the page with the embedded video.

Thanks Bill. That's what I thought but wanted to be sure since it wasn't called out specifically as not an option. I agree with your recommendation.

@ Bill Due to the limitation on space can clients connect to an Amazon Cloud solution (S3) and store files there yet present them in Confluence? My client is concerned they will run out of space quickly on Confluence. The current solution listed by Atlassian is to delete content which isn't really the way they want to go if they're investing in AOD.

Hi Davin, the add-on Ink lets you add files from the cloud into Confluence.
