Help with video upload - how can I upload some videos without password protection?

Explorer | Level 3

Hi I have an exam coming up, where I have to upload 4 very short videos to dropbox without password protection. How do I do this? And I only have the free version of dropbox, is that ok or do I need to upgrade. Is it easier on MacBook or iPhone? Help a newbie out please

Hi there @Reze81, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Just so I can have a better idea of what you'd like to do, do you need to just upload the files to your own Dropbox account, so you can share them from there?

 

Or perhaps someone has sent you a file request link, to upload the files through there?

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi here is the exam text: 

"All 4 videos should each be fewer than 100 MB in size, have a minimum resolution of 640x480 and be no longer than 2 minutes in duration. Each video should be uploaded to Youtube, Google Photos/Drive, Vimeo or Dropbox without a password.

You should submit 4 hyperlinks to the 4 uploaded videos in one email sent to Info@........ with the subject 'PTC Technique Exam: [your name]’. "

Thanks for that info @Reze81!

 

In this case, I would suggest first uploading the videos to your Dropbox account.

 

From there, you can create a shared link to the videos, with these steps.

 

Only Professional and Business accounts have the option to add a password to a shared link, so no need to worry about that either.
