No. But you can post a link to the file in a description of a regular image that is hosted on your account.

If you use a comptible ASX video reader like Windoows MediaPlayer, like here in my CPG-ng test site :
http://webotron.online.fr/cpg-ng/displayimage.php?pid=25

or inside an another Coppermine :
MP3 or Video in this page are not on the same host, and not under my present Coppermine.
http://www.pays-dignois.com/galerie/thumbnails.php?album=20&page=1
after, an 988bites ASX exemple who catch a video in an other place :
Code: [Select]
<Asx Version = "3.0" >
<Title > toyota-rav4</Title>
<Param Name = "AllowShuffle" Value = "yes" />
<Entry>
<Duration value = "00:01:1.999" />
<Author > www.superzooi.com</Author>
<Param Name = "Bitrate" Value = "346000" />
<Param Name = "FileSize" Value = "2572074" />
<Param Name = "FileType" Value = "wmv" />
<Param Name = "Is_Protected" Value = "False" />
<Param Name = "Is_Trusted" Value = "false" />
<Param Name = "IsVBR" Value = "False" />
<Param Name = "MediaType" Value = "video" />
<Param Name = "SourceURL" Value = "http://webotron.online.fr/cpg-ng/albums/auto-rave4/06100307_rav4.wmv" />
<Title > Who will drive today?</Title>
<Param Name = "type" Value = "local" />
<Param Name = "UserPlayCount" Value = "1" />
<Param Name = "WMFSDKNeeded" Value = "0.0.0.0000" />
<Param Name = "WMFSDKVersion" Value = "9.00.00.2980" />
<Ref href = "http://webotron.online.fr/cpg-ng/albums/auto-rave4/06100307_rav4.wmv"/>
</Entry>
</Asx>

You can copy and paste this code, and save it as Rav4.asx on your hard-drive, then upload this one to your Coppermine, that's all. Only 998bytes in your Coppermine, and a lot of band on my host  ;)

Wow... It's great...
WORK SUCCESSFULLY on my site !!!
Thanks for your support.... Wanna give you +1 karma, but how is the way?

P.S  How did you make the thumbnail for your video in http://expo.pays-dignois.com/thumbnails.php?album=20&page=1  ?
Can it automatically create a thumbnail for the videos without upload the thumb_XXX.jpg ?


Thank  you

1) Regular users can't give/take karma - this priviledge is limited to certain groups on this board.
2) Read custom thumbnails up in the docs. There's no automatism though

You must take a screenshoot, resize, and save it with your video name, plus thumb_ before. That's all.

How do you know? I can't see who gave me karma, I wonder how you were able to find out who rated your karma. Don't draw false conclusions :-\
I will not give you positive karma for this particular hack: I don't like the idea of remote storage, as there will be people who abuse it and steal other's bandwidth.

Nice ! You do not like French humour translated in bad english.
Anyway, Thanx to push me up, or maybe it's Thu : K+8 ;)
