So I can consider that there is no other way except this!

And as my files and videos contains private information of my company and the meeting, the only way is to upload them on our own server?

Even if I use ip address of my localhost on my virtualhost?

my architecture until now is like: var/www/  1.ezpublish 2.myvideofolder

I have created a directory in my vh :

and can I use this filder somewhere else ? even on one another server ?

Well, if you are able to put the files on some domain so you have static urls for each, then you can link it how you want. I don't see what is the problem.

I suggested youtube as it is hassle free

You could use YouTube's privacy settings:

Another option would be to put them on a different server and create a custom class so people could access them.  However, it would probably be more secure to use YouTube, because once they are on a server, it may be difficult to restrict direct access.

If videos are on a locally-accessible http server, just use a text-string to hold its name, and use a template to prepend to it the rest of the url.

For more advanced handling, create a custom datatype. Then when editor adds a "video" obj, he might be able to browse around the existing videos on your file share.
