Help needed hosting a video

Hi all

I have SmartFTP access to my websites server

Can someone please tell me how to add a video to one of the folders and get it to display for someone on the other side of the world in order for them to download it?

I can get pictures from my IMAGES folder to display in web forums etc but cannot seem to get the video thing to work

I have already uploaded the video to the host using SmartFTP. I can see it there but when I put the URL in the web browser nothing comes up
