How to Stream Video and Audio Files Stored In Your Cloud Service Using MemberGate's Responsive Media Players

Now you can store and play your videos in the 'cloud' with MemberGate's Responsive Media Players

Instead of only using files stored on your Membergate server, mp4, m4v and mp3  files from third party solutions can be used with the MemberGate's, responsive  Media Players
