Here you find a couple of testimonials by happy customers of S3Media Stream for WordPress. One customer was so happy with the support that he made a video testimonial:
This is an AWESOME plugin. It is a must have if you want to protect your content.
I did my research and could not find any other plugins that could do as much as this one. The setup took some time (mostly on the Amazon AWS side), but nothing compared to what building this functionality from the ground up would be.
The support from the WP21 Century team could not be better. They are experts and quick to advise on necessary changes to make things work. We even worked directly with their team to resolve some issues caused by interference from other plugins. The process was smooth, and the response times were FAST!
I want to also say that I’m impressed with their dedication to improving this plugin. We asked for a feature (that may be included soon, so I won’t ruin the surprise) and they began development on it immediately. AMAZING! I just installed the modified plugin today and it works great.

"Before I bought S3Media Stream I had bought another WordPress plugin. I wanted a plugin that could integrate with Amazon CloudFront and give true streaming to my subscribers, particularly for longer videos so that they could jump ahead without waiting for the entire video to load first.
The first plugin I bought didn't work, even after hours of configuration. So I contacted their support. In the meantime I bought S3Media Stream and had it working within 15 minutes, and support still hasn't helped me resolve the issue with the original plugin!
To be fair, I had to do some of the groundwork like setting up CloudFront distributions with the first plugin, which I then applied to S3Media Stream. Otherwise it probably would've taken an hour instead of 15 minutes. But the point is that S3Media Stream works and is very user friendly and customizable.
Rudolf's (the creator) tutorials in the member's area of the plugin website are so incredibly concise and well layed-out. Not just the video tutorials, but the step by step text and image tutorials are invaluable. It's amazing to me that there aren't more plugins like this that allow for the best user experience both in terms of speed and control AND that cost less to publishers since CloudFront dynamically loads the parts of videos that people watch and you don't pay for bandwidth of any unwatched video.
Oh, and one last thing. You can purchase this plugin bundled with an UNbranded version of JWPlayer. What more can I say? This plugin kicks ass!"

For months I worked my way through pretty much every Amazon S3 protection plugin I could find… Disappointed I eventually decided to have my own coders write one from scratch only to stumble over S3MediaStream when we were about 80% done…
At a fraction of the cost I was "spending in-house" S3MediaStream seemed to do what I wanted so I decided to try Rudolf's plugin.
I am finally satisfied and have decided to scrap my own plugin.
But far more than the feature set, the one-on-one support I got when I ran into a little hiccup was simply *phenomenal* and in itself worth more than I paid for the plugin.
To me, S3MediaStream simply stands "head and shoulders" above the rest for feature set, simplicity and support.
Bottomline - If you host content on Amazon S3 that you value, don't waste your days debating other solutions… Get S3MediaStream, protect your content and get on with business.

"I just wanted to say: Thank you so much for your help the other day in getting me setup. My stuff is flying now. I've been able to process hundreds of videos, no problems! Super easy and fast with the modifications made."

I absolutely LOVE S3 MediaStream. Before that, I had looked everywhere and gotten all kinds of confusing and conflicting advice from the forums on Amazon Web Services. This plugin eliminated hours of frustration and lots of potentially wasted money.
As far as I have been able to see, it’s the only plugin that also works with Cloudfront – what a dream! And the support is phenomenal. That helped me so much – the support. Clear, easy, no BS, no hassles. Just good folks who stand behind their product and really deliver what they promise to deliver. I am very impressed with the quality and service, and must say this plugin is worth every dollar I invested in it. *sigh of relief…*
