Hi you can call all media folder from Amazon s3 Follow below tutorial and let me know


and for full media url you can do like this

$media_url = Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_MEDIA);

and for Your method try this

->addImageToMediaGallery("$media_url/media/catalog/product/1/0/10243-1.png", array('image','thumbnail','small_image'), false, false)

I am not 100% sure its working or not but you can try and let me know
