Link to a file.
« on: August 03, 2006, 05:10:38 am »

Hi all new with coppermine.
Was wondering if you could point me in the right direction.
I would like to put a movie file in one of my albums but at 129mb it's too big.
What i would like to do is to be able to link to it from my album so when the album opens you can download it from a link.

Hope this makes sense

Thank you

If you want to get around this, how about uploading a small movie file with the same filename?  Then, FTP to the folder where it was stored and replace it with the large file.

Let's fight the root cause for your inability to add the large movie to coppermine: you probably tried uploading it using http uploads. Files that are that large definitely can't be uploaded that way, as both the client (browser) as well as the server will time-out. You (as Coppermine admin) should use FTP-upload plus batch-add (refer to docs) at all times. This will enable you to add movie files of any file size (it's another question though if your users will be happy to download huge files like that). In the end, this suggestion is similar to the suggestion made by eruss, but less complicated: what would be the point of http-uploading a small file and then FTP uploading the large one. You'd have the additional step of having to create the small movie file. Instead, so as I suggested and you'll be fine - the video will exist on your server's webspace and in coppermine's database as well. You could then follow the suggestion made by bmossavari and apply the download plugin if you want, or you can savely go with the regular embedded display method built-into coppermine.
