Hi Michael B,

It is not a feature of Caspio hosting videos and accessing the file with in the DataPage will definitely incur data transfer. When you exceed your data transfer, there will be charged. 

An option, it is best to host your videos in a video platform like Youtube and save the links into your table. In your reports DataPage's results page, you can show a link and when the user clicked the link a pop-up window will show the embedded video.

I found this related article online which might be useful for you if you decided to use youtube: https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters

I also have the same issue before, I believe that Caspio can save a video file in the table (Single file upload via DataPage submission is 50 MB) but it will not or cannot be played in the DataPage once you play it because I think they don't have a player for that.

In addition to the previous comment above, you can use Youtube to store your videos and you can also  play it at the same time.

Hope that helps.

Hi All - just to update this thread, I would like to share that we can actually embed a video file to a DataPage by inserting the following code:

<video width="400" controls>
  <source src="[@field:Video_File/]" type="video/mp4">
  Your browser does not support HTML5 video.

If you're planning on using videos from google drive, you just need to get the sharable link and change the "view?usp=sharing" at the end of the link to "preview".



Sharable link that you can get in google drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ae-otLad3N2m6Oas2893cE2fNo4UeRu2KoH-/view?usp=sharing

Link you can use as a source for the video tag in HTML:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ae-otLad3N2m6Oas2893cE2fNo4UeRu2KoH-/preview
