The docs do say "The second option is to embed the Google Drive media in your content directly. In this case, the media will be loaded from Google Drive, not from your server.", but I have been told this is not how it functions.
Ready to buy but need to know if this is how it can work.
I have the same question. Can I upload a file using the WP Media Folder plugin, and have the file only exist in the cloud? I have thousands of .pdf files that I want to make available through a link on a post, but not have that file stored directly in the WordPress uploads folder.
