Can't add shared files to my dropbox

Can't add shared files to my dropbox

New member | Level 2

My university would share a link to a video file uploaded to Dropbox. And in order to watch it to the end (preview video on the site lasts only 60 minutes, and lectures are a bit longer) I had to add it to my Dropbox account (there used to be a special button on the site). But now there is no such button there. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this?

Hey there @andoiev17; welcome to our Community!

 

Assuming that the downloads from this shared link haven't been disabled, could you try accessing this shared link from another browser and let me know if you're still not getting the option to add it to your account? 

 

Let me know what you find!
