Using Workers (bundled) to serve video?

According to the general TOS:

2.8 Limitation on Serving Non-HTML Content
The Services are offered primarily as a platform to cache and serve web pages and websites. Unless explicitly included as part of a Paid Service purchased by you, you agree to use the Services solely for the purpose of (i) serving web pages as viewed through a web browser or other functionally equivalent applications, including rendering Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) or other functional equivalents, and (ii) serving web APIs subject to the restrictions set forth in this Section 2.8. Use of the Services for serving video or a disproportionate percentage of pictures, audio files, or other non-HTML content is prohibited, unless purchased separately as part of a Paid Service or expressly allowed under our Supplemental Terms for a specific Service. If we determine you have breached this Section 2.8, we may immediately suspend or restrict your use of the Services, or limit End User access to certain of your resources through the Services.

My question is - if I use a paid service - Workers (bundled), and pay for my usage, am I allowed to serve video data (potentially large numbers)? I would not be using any of cloudflare’s cache (neither CDN nor Cache API)

It isn’t about Cache or CDN. It’s about piping that data over Cloudflare’s network, which still violates 2.8. You’d need an Enterprise plan to do this. Or Stream.

Thanks for your answer. It would be great though to get an official response from Cloudflare. Even in the post you linked, the guy couldn’t get an official answer from the sales team, which is kinda ridiculous (they should know what they are selling). Also, if there is some egress charge, why not simply publish it (like AWS and all the others do)? All those custom-pricing schemes make it so intransparent and really discourages me to use Cloudflare (even though I really like the services themselves)
