Does Dropbox embeded video consume our bandwidth limit?


I was watching this video to embed a video to our website but now I’m not sure if it will consume our bandwidth limit.

Since the video is around 100 MB and it’s the homepage, I wonder if a lot of people access it, it will pass our limit.

Nope. It’s direct from Dropbox.

First I would say that dumping a 100MB load on a visitor is well, excessive. You are better off streaming that then a video download.

A browser loads assets from wherever those assets are served. If they are off Webflow then you are only using the visitors bandwidth and the hosting source’s.

If the video is correctly encoded, even a hotlink from dropbox is actually streaming it, vs. dl + play.

But you’re right anyway, big video sit better on a streaming service, served by an appropriate player.
