I am afraid that I do not fully understand what you are asking.

What URL are you linking to? And are we hosting the MP4?

Hi, it is a private url that I fetch:
As you can see the format at the end contains LAST which means this video gets automatically changed on Amazon servers.
When I load it from the player, it seems I still get an old cache version and not the latest mp4 video.
Any idea how to force last video?

Our player only requests the video URL that you put into the player setup. If your web host is returning the incorrect video from that URL request, then our player will not have a way to fix that. My suggestion would be to check with your contacts at the web host.

What if you add a cachebuster parameter to your video URL? like:
