Streaming video content over cloudflare limits

Let’s say i am hosting a jellyfin video server on my personal server hosted on some provider. The domain where that jellyfin is located sits behing cloudflare dns, so all video traffic goes through cloudflare. I am using the service solely for myself to stream work/personal videos, but they are high resolution, so can generate up to 1-2TB traffic/month . Is there a limit to how much i can stream on a free cloudflare account? What options do I have if there is a limit? I dont want to violate any terms of service and get my account blocked. Thank you!

Hello to the Cloudflare Community :logodrop:

For this Use Case you would need to use an Unproxied DNS Record. You are not allowed to use the CDN to Serve Video Files etc when not using a Cloudflare Paid Product that is designed to do so.

Cloudflare offers specific Paid Services (e.g., the Developer Platform, Images, and Stream) that you must use in order to serve video and other large files via the CDN. Cloudflare reserves the right to disable or limit your access to or use of the CDN, or to limit your End Users’ access to certain of your resources through the CDN, if you use or are suspected of using the CDN without such Paid Services to serve video or a disproportionate percentage of pictures, audio files, or other large files.
