    On your website, you can link to another website, image, video, or file (.zip , .rar .etc). You cannot link to "an external hard drive" . Try dropbox, they have a feature where you can link to a specific folder. Hope this helps.

    I found that iTunes let's you follow the path to your external hard drive files for upload, i'm looking for something similar. okay I will look into it.

    If you want to have your file in your local computer and expose it publicly with an hyperlink to internet. You need a WebServer like Apache, NGINX or IIS (with a webserver you can serve files and/or folders). Then you'll need to configure it and configure your network to make requests to http://yourpublicip/whatelse.mp4 resolve to somewhere in your local computer http://192.168.0.1/whatelse.mp4 (using NAT, a DMZ or DDNS) to expose it to internet, publicly. You need to configure this translation. IF NOT. Your best bet is to just upload the file to an external provider like mega or dropbox... and grab the direct link they offer. Or just upload the files directly to your hosting...

    What your question truly reveals is your lack of knowledge. You should take some tutorials on how internet works. HTML5, Hostings, Domains, and how your own router works.

    If you are trying to let people have a download link then there are WP plugins which let you do that with secure download link as well as direct download links.

    Appreciate the info, but it was totally unnecessary for the knowledge comment. That is not what the bhw community is for. I understand how it works, that why I clarified my question to the other user above. There is a reason why a questions are asked to receive answers not opinions.

    Not possible linking directly to your hdd. Not recommended anyway. You can upload your files to dropbox or mega.nz; they'll give you a link to share with anybody.
    Another option is rent a server and upload all the files there. Anyone with the server link can download what you upload.
