Hello @timgorge20. Thanks for posting and Welcome to Dropbox Community. 

The file can not be "mirrored"  to your website with full preview from Dropbox. Meaning that the file is physically in Dropbox and you can create a link to it, to then add the link to your website, but people will have to click the link to see it. 

Please note Dropbox accounts have bandwidth limits. Your shared link views will add up to that. You can read about this here: https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/banned-links

I also wanted to add this Help center article for previews of videos and audio via Dropbox: https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/photos/video-length

Get back to me with all your questions. Cheers!
