In an announcement by Amazon Web Services (AWS) today, Amazon CloudFront now has the ability to stream audio and video files. The best part is that there are "no additional charges for streaming with Amazon CloudFront; you simply pay normal rates for the data that you transfer using the service."
For me personally, I had to partner with third-parties to allow my clients the ability to stream audio and/or video and trust me, it wasn't cheap. Granted, many of the companies that currently provide this service offer "value-added" products and services, but still, it wasn't exactly affordable for many of our smaller clients.
Thank you Amazon!
