No, you can do this, but you first need to create a symbolic link - 
at the root of the tree - named "foo:bar:baz:video.mpg" - that points 
to the actual file.

I.e., at the root of thr tree, run
         ln -s foo/bar/baz/video.mpg foo:bar:baz:video.mpg
(if you're running a Unix system; I don;t know how you do this in Windoze).

I.e., the actual file name, read by the server, is "foo:bar:baz:video.mpg"
