Serving video off the cloud

The website for Love never Dies features three videos, one of the Coney Island Waltz, and the other of the press release of the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. However, the video, run via the jquery plugin of an SWF video player is being served off http://cloudfront.loveneverdies.com. Which is in the cloud. The FLV file (that the video is in, all 116MB of it) is being served off the cloud provided by Amazon’s cloudfront.net (off its US servers etc). And it’s slow and cuts out all the time… I would have thought outside line would have chosen another delivery mechanism?
