Like many personal file hosting sites they don't give you the real path the to actual file. If you paste the link into browser you see it opens in custom watch page, it is not the real path to the file.

So , I will save you time, forget it and use Amazon S3 storage

Hi, there!

Mark is correct – when Mediafire gives you that URL, it’s a URL that allows anyone you share it with the ability to watch the video – it is not a link to the video itself. Our “Add by URL” features only works with actual absolute paths to files, stored on some host that gives you the ability to link to them, like Amazon S3 for example. The only exception to that rule, is YouTube, which our player will allow you to add a YouTube URL to it.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
