Videos loading very slow. What should I do?

I have a few videos in JW Player that are loading very slow. One example here:

I have seen other sites that use JW Player, and their videos are really high quality and they load perfectly without any stop time, so I would like to be able to do that as well.
The video above is hosted on an Amazon bucket and i've linked it in JW Player, then embedded it in my website. I've also tried Flowplayer which is slow as well. The fastest was youtube, but it took a lot of its quality.
I would like to know how I can embed videos on our blog, using JW player, so that they will load instantly.
Oh, and I've tried different internet connections, still same thing. So it's not like my connection was bad.
I also use Cloudflare. Should I do some specific Settings with Clodflare?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you try uploading the content to your dashboard? If you’re hosting the videos on an S3 Bucket, then the S3 bucket is responsible for video delivery.

By uploading the original content to your Dashboard, you may see an increase in speed since our CDN will be serving the content.
