When you are using the Bulk Import tool, you have the option to add your image or video to the CSV file. However, you need to make sure that you use a public URL. Below you can find the steps on how to do this via a hosted webpage, Dropbox or Google Drive.

Dropbox

4. Open a new tab or a notepad and paste the copied link there. At the end of your link, you should see the parameter dl=0. You need to make sure to add the parameter &raw=1 at the end of the link.
