How to link to Amazon S3 videos

Here's a short tip on how to link to Amazon S3 videos by David:

I was getting the link directly from AWS by clicking on each video's properties and copying the link:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/bucket_name/lim4p/video/myvideo.mp4

I didn't realize till today that even though it is a correct link it will not work with WPMobileVideoPlayer. You have to copy the link thru S3 Firefox Organizer. Any other way will keep your video from playing. The good link looks like this:

http://bucket_name.s3.amazonaws.com/lim4p/video/myvideo.mp4

The only difference between the 2 is where the "bucket name" is.

Thank you David for sharing this tip with us!
