Hey @NeilM, and welcome to our Community! 

The Dropbox app is not designed to be a fully-featured media player, so you'd need to install the respective app on your phone, then play the files you want. 

I’m not able to recommend specific third-party apps, but I can give you some pointers. 

It sounds like your device doesn’t have the capability to open/play the file you’ve downloaded. So, you need to see what kind of file it is, and then look for an app that can handle it. 

Don't hesitate to get back to us if anything comes up.
