link not working on iPhone, but working with android and pc

link not working on iPhone, but working with android and pc

Hi, from yesterday my links don't work only with iPhone. same links work on android and on a personal computer.

 

I put the link in my website, Wordpress, changing final dl=0 in raw=1 (I have always made this)

 

https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/8sm34royqnuqvo419xeaf/08_08_23-alta-intensita-compr.mp4?rlkey=0z1p7an...

 

I think the problem is this string "lkey=0z1p7anguuvl1x2pkr9bn7q3f&"

 

in the previous links there was name of my file.mp4? and then dl=0

 

who can help me?

Hi @simona flamantes,

You always need to change parameter 'dl' with value 0 to parameter 'raw' with value 1 and nothing more. It's still the same. Before, in the query (the part after '?' in the URL) was single parameter (the one you need to change). Now, there is one more, nothing else! In a URL, parameters are separated by '&'. So, you need still only change the target parameter (not entire query).

Hope this helps.

Hm.. 🤔 Ok. Try something else. Wipe out dl=0 parameter (again not entire query) and parameter separator, instead of changing the parameter and change the subdomain 'www' to 'dl'. Does the link work everywhere now?

In your opinion, will this fix be temporary until something changes again? Or this a permanent fix?  Thansk.

Hi @AVP,

This form of link representation isn't something new, so it's not a fix. You can represent in such a way any Dropbox link (or least most of them). About are there any chance this to be stopped... Good question, but for sure I cannot say (recently many things changed without notice in advance). It seems that some link "recipients" (third party apps) have some bugs in links interpretation, better those bugs to be fixed.

Let's hope this won't be suspended, but who knows...

I have used dropbox for a year or so to upload custom Rust maps to my server host but since the rlkey change the server cannot properly access the file and simple changing dl=0 to dl=1 no longer does anything.

Need more support?
