AWS : how to play a video file from s3 bucket in browser

URI

all you have to do is to sign a request like:

https://s3.amazonaws.com/yourbucket/key?response-content-disposition=inline&X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=AKIAJWWH7EGSUBWE34IQ/20181228/us-east-1/s3/aws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20181228T074135Z&X-Amz-Expires=86400&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=b3143f8442812e176fd61838813a33f53cfd7e198e1c6e68fab5d03d4a642403

and set it as src attribue to a video element.
