Direct S3 Support

Currently I do most of my streaming via sftp, to a machine that has S3 mounted with s3fs. It’s clunky and slow (buffers a LOT). I’d love to be able to just access S3 directly.

Given all the available cloud options, I’m a little surprised there isn’t S3 already. You apparently already use S3 for cloud backups (according to my brief search for dupes of this suggestion) so at least some support is already in the codebase. Plus, it’s a pretty common API that would allow people to use a number of storage options outside of Amazon themselves.

Yes! S3 streaming would be fantastic. Generic S3 ideally so that it supports Amazon, B2, Wasabi, etc.

I second this as well. Currently, dropbox has a 3TB personal limit, and Google drive jump drastically in price once you go over 2TB. S3 would allow you to have more than 2-3TB without a significant jump in price that traditional cloud storage providers offer.
