Can you use Media Converted files outside of AWS?

I would like to know if you can download the files that have been transcoded and use them outside of AWS. As our project grows, I would like to keep an eye on potentially using an alternate CDN service that is not tied to AWS. I would like a backup with the files that I have already transcoded using AWS Elemental MediaConvert in storage as we are figuring out our best option for a service provider being a small company if that is possible. Would I have to transcode the videos again with their software, or can the .m3u8/.ts files be taken elsewhere? Our launch of our product will be done with AWS CloudFront and it is already set up and working, but we are unaware of what traffic we might incur, and we would like to be ready if it gets expensive quick. There isn't much information that I can find about the actual process of how a .m3u8 file works dissected. I keep seeing that it is a playlist that points to the files, and how the distribution works, but what happens when the .m3u8 file url is called. A lot of the examples show a url in the .m3u8 file, but looking at the ones I downloaded from my bucket, it seems like it looks for a name. Is it because it is in the same folder that it plays? Is there a process I don't see that runs when the URL is called that finds the files? I'm a app developer so video formats, transcoding, and a lot of AWS features are very foreign to me and very confusing, but I would like to know how the process works. My main question is if you can use the transcoded files elsewhere easily, but if anyone can point me to a good breakdown of how the process works, I would greatly appreciate that. I Like to know how a car engine works, not just put the key in and turn it to start it, but if I just get how to start it then I'm good with that.
