    Is there any way to use the new VideoPlayer to stream videos stored on Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, One Drive, Amazon, or any other competing cloud service?

    Bump. I haven't tried yet, but was wondering if there was a roadblock for this?

    I wonder if the assets for playing YouTube videos could be modified to support Google Drive.

    The URL is not public one, but protected by security.. To play video from Google cloud bucket, I need to supply API key or OAUTH 2.0 token. It has to be somehow passed in REST header or some other means. Any thoughts on this?
