Hi, there.

If I understand you correctly, are you asking if using our player to stream content from your server would affect your server’s bandwidth? If so, yes – it would be just like people were downloading the file from your server.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!

Thank you for your answer. I was wondering if it would decrease bandwitdh (5gb?).

That 5GB limit only is for media that we are hosting.
