Using Amazon S3 over my own Host?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Hi, I’m not fully sure I know how this works yet.

I need to add 5 videos to my website, but instead of using Youtube’s bandwidth and logo, I want to use a video player and host the videos elsewhere myself.

The video player allows me to upload a video directly to a wordpress post or stream from Amazon S3.

When I stream from Amazon S3 I notice the video loads much faster, is this because they are using a CDN and by uploading the video directly I am using my own host which is slower?

So would it make most sense for me to just stream my videos from S3, or can I do this for my entire website?
