Create a share link that always points to most recent version of video in Replay

In Dropbox Replay, I would like the ability to create a share link that would always point to the most recent version of a video that is being reviewed.

Hi @APSChad, thank you for writing to our Community! 

Can you let me know what happens when you click on the share button and share a link to one of your videos at the moment? 

Let me know more, and we'll take it from there.

@Megan  When I click on the share button it generates a link to whatever version the file is on at that moment.   What I'm looking to achieve is to create a share link that always points to the latest version.   

 

So for example, I could send the link to a client and then in the meantime change to a new version in the project. Currently, the link i send the client would point to a specific version and if I change the version in the project I would need to send a new link to the client.   I would like to be able to have the option to make the sharing link always point to the latest version of the project. That way if I update to a new version I won't have to send a new link.

Hi @APSChad, I hope you're doing well!

I have an alternative that might work for you.

If you take the URL and remove the ?video_version_id={token} part it'll always open up the latest version

Example: https://replay.dropbox.com/share/BMHDP8PFY1UJ7i5b?video_version_id=pid_rvv%3AAAAAAJVyV5TonIA3CQGgrSm... becomes https://replay.dropbox.com/share/BMHDP8PFY1UJ7i5b.

Want to give it a go?
