I have a content type video. It has some fileds for file meta data and a file upload field. Upload and display works fine.

Now I want to add a second video file to this content type. This file can either be uploaded or selected from a select field.

So you can select a previously uploaded file or add a new one. The select box should show all files that where added for any post with content type video.

Any ideas how to do this? I am using drupal 6.

FileField Sources module you are looking for, it is an extension to the FileField module. The FileField module lets you upload files from your computer through a CCK field. The FileField Sources module expands on this ability by allowing you to select new or existing files through additional means, including:

  • Re-use files by an auto-complete textfield
  • Attach server-side files uploaded via FTP
  • Transfer files from a remote server (cURL required)
  • Paste a file directly from the clipboard (Drupal 7 only)
  • Select existing files through the IMCE file browser
