Users do not need to download media files from a URL and then upload it with rtMedia. Just provide the URL for the media and rtMedia will handle it.
Enable URL Upload feature
To use this feature, the site admin first needs to enable the URL Upload option under Other Settings tab from rtMedia admin settings.
