angular js templateUrl with absolute path

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

On the video watch page with the url


, I had a ng app. The directive is shown as below.

app.directive('myApp', function() {
    return {
      restrict: 'E',
      templateUrl: 'ng-templates/myTemplate.html', 
      link: function(scope, elem, attrs) {
      controller: 'Controller'

Since the templateUrl is the relative path, it will try to find the template in


which is an error.

I want to put all the templates in the ng-templates folder. But it won’t work if the ng app always looks for the relative path. Is there a way to configure the app making it to look for ‘/ng-template/myTemplate.html’?
