It runs on the main domain address of your site. For example, if our domain name is mizbanfatv. Ir and we upload our file directly into the same public_html; our file name is tezt.zip. The link to download our file will be mizbanfatv.ir/test.zip, but Now if we come and create a folder in Public_html and upload our file in that folder, then our file download link will be the domain address, slash, the name of the folder where the uploaded file is, slash the name of the file, so if we test the file. Upload the zip into the download folder, and our domain name should be mizbanfatv. Ir, then our download link will be mizbanfatv.ir/download/test.zip. So now that we have created another folder inside the download folder named 2016 and uploaded our file there, the download address of our file becomes mizbanfatv.ir/download/1395/test.zip.

The .mp4 extension is the same format or video file extension that must be included in the download link. And if our file is a zip file, its format or extension will be .zip, so the download link will also be mizbanfatv.ir/download/test.zip. If you do not know the extension of the file that you are going to create the download link, there is no problem after uploading.
