    I am currently trying to import this mp4 video file (http://www.letstalktechshow.com/show/show/video/LetsTalkTech01.mp4) into power press but every time I click verify it gives me this error(Error occurred downloading media file.).

    I have verified that the link works and I can enter that same link in the address bar and it will play the mp4 video fine, but why is power press not accepting the working mp4 link?

    That media URL verifies fine for me in test site. More than likely there is a firewall setup on your server blocking your server from accessing itself, or a mod_security module in the server blocking the request. It may also be that your web hosting is not resolving your own domain locally correctly. Quick check for that is to add www.letstalktechshow.com to the server's hosts file.

    Rule of thumb, you do not want to host media files on the same server as your web site, it will cause traffic issues and result in slow loading web pages when you release new podcast episodes.
