Your phone is running 4.4, so you need to flash NC5. Don't download to your phone, download it to your computer, like decaturbob said.
If you really can't download from Android File Host, get someone with a reliable network connection to download it for you.

As far as your question about the YouTube directions, that's the problem with You Tube videos - they're history, old, and unreliable. Nobody updates them. It's easy to find videos telling people how to flash CM on their S4 which NEVER say "oh, and this will brick your phone if you're not on the MDK build". Don't watch videos and follow them unless you understand the risks.
That's why we've created sticky threads here to try to keep people from going down the wrong path.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.
VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
