In order to speed up the loading of the website, or to serve the media files (in case of gaatha story mostly audio files) from a different server, I decided to test out a variety of Content Delivery networks: fast.io, Publitio, gumlet, PushrCDN, droplr , and our own media host, Rorarii..
Some of these images were resized using shortpixel (except for droplr). The audio files are mp3s encoded at 128 kbps.
Image served directly from server
Image served via PushrCDN
Note: There are some browser compatibility issues with images coming off of droplr. I am posting the links to the images instead.

My account is currently not operational there, while it gets resolved, posting a couple of links for test files I had created in January 2020.
