    Hey guys,

    I would like to save some disk space and stream the cinematic cutscenes from the server.
    Is there an asset for streaming cutscene videos from remote server or web server or from youtube? Do you know about something like this or do you have any other idea how to solve it? If there is nothing like this out there I guess I will have to write my own solution.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    So what happens if people want to play your game and the video server is down temporarily/permanently?

    Thinly veiled excuse like an on screen message: "You've played for too long today. Take a break."

    Just a heads-up. You're most likely going to want to host the video yourself. YouTube and other companies like them often provide APIs to allow you to embed videos but they have very strict requirements and are not intended for the purpose you want to use them for.
