How to embed a video from your Dropbox account on a website

How to embed a video from your Dropbox account on a website

Is it possible to embed a video that has been uploaded to Dropbox on to a website? I would like to embed the video so people can logon to my site and view the videos.

Actually, you can, depending on the platform you're referring to. You'll need to create a share link to the video, then modify the link by changing the ?dl=0 at the end to ?raw=1. That results in a direct link to the file which you can use to embed it on most sites.

 

Just remember that when embedding a file like that (or really, anytime a file is played directly from Dropbox) there are bandwidth limitations to consider. Depending on the size of the file and your account type, you could easily use up all of alotted bandwidth for your account.
