Remember not all the cloud servers allow to play video directly.  These are the cloud servers that should work without problems: Google Drice, Box, Onedrive, Dropbox, Mediafire, Baidu and Yandex.

If your default video player does not play the videos, we recommend you to install VLC Media Player (videolan.org)
