Video, although projected to make up 76% of all web traffic in 2018, can require a lot of expensive server disc space and internet bandwidth.
If you're on a shoestring budget, but still need to serve private video content on your site, it can be challenging to answer the age old question "how do I show my site's users and members private video content and keep the costs down?"
