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)

In some cases, depending on your connection or the server, increasing the number of simultaneous downloads and uploads will increase the global speed but, if you reach your connection limit it could go even slower or affect you browser speed.
