How can I embedded video links from Dropbox to other websites?

Explorer | Level 3

Hi there.


I want to embed videos stored in my drobbox into my website that I built on Cargo Collective. How do I produce the embedded link from dropbox to post to my website?

Hoping this makes sense.

Thanks

Hey there @Theronnyc, I hope you're well today!

 

To embed a link to one of your videos, you can try using a shared link and use these steps to force the file to render.

 

Let me know if this does the trick!

Hi Theron; how are you today?

 

I'm sorry to jump in, but can you please clarify what's not working for you?

 

Did you try the steps @Daphne mentioned and got an error? If so, could you post a screenshot so we can have a look?

 

Thanks a bunch @Theronnyc!

Hi Walter-

 

To further clarify, unfortunately, I do not write code and therefore it's too difficult for me to write the embedding code needed to link to a video stored in dropbox.

 

I would recommend that dropbox generate these embedded codes in a similar fashion that Youtube or Vimeo does. I have a lot of video work that I need to store (and eventually embed in my website) and I am considering migrating my storage to another platform that can generate the codes.

 

Hope this clarification helps.
