Hi @Daria Ten, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Are you copying the link from the Dropbox site, mobile app or the desktop folder?

 

How have you copied the link previously?

 

This will help me to assist further!

thanks for the response! I added the video to the "all files" section. then clicked "get link", everything is as usual. but before it was of a different kind. when I copy the link, it says "link allows viewing".

here is a link to my video, maybe it will help https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/1d0axdy6pmqneiibcm65f/1.mp4?rlkey=mtql6nmad5uqqumktorxzmaex&dl=0

Hey there @Daria Ten, sorry to jump in, but have you tried replacing www with dl in your newly created links?
