To my surprise I noticed that it isn't possible to embed shared files anymore by using the ?raw=1 parameters as discussed in the Dropbox Help Center.
For instance, I am not able to see the following file anymore in Chrome 56.0.2924.87 or 57.0.2987.98:
The Errors that are being thrown by Chrome:
The issues currently doesn't seem to affect any other browsers like IE, Edge or FF.
Update: Safari 10.0.3 (Mac Sierra) also seems to be affected
Are you are aware of this issue? And will it be solved?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am getting the same error and additional errors; all our PDF documents that are using the public Dropbox link are having this problem.
I'm currently using Chrome 56.0.2924.87
We are having issues opening ?raw=1 links in Chrome.
This was working fine up until today.
If I copy the link to the file, then change ?dl=1 to ?raw=1 and copy & paste it into my navigation bar, it continuously loads the file, but never succeeds in rendering it. I asked another person in our office to test this and they can recreate this 100% of the time just like me.
@jdbrown It looks like this may be an issue with Chrome. With what version(s) of Chrome are you seeing this issue?
I was able to reproduce the issue with Chrome 61.0.3163.100, but it works again for me in Chrome 62.0.3202.75, so it looks like it may already be fixed in new versions.
