I can see other files from my account when I share my video with a shared link

Explorer | Level 3

Every time I create a link from a video in a Dropbox folder, all my files are seen when link is shared.

What you can do in this case is to replace the dl=0 with raw=1, which will allow your browser to directly render the file. 

 

Give that a try and let me know if it does the trick for you. Thanks!

Re: Sharing video via link

Dropboxer

Hi there @MCL23, I'd be happy to help look into this with you. 

 

Generally, when you create a shared link to a specific folder or file, users should only be able to see the contents that are in it, and nothing outside of it. 

 

Could you preview your shared link from an incognito window (without being signed in to your account), and let me know if there are any files other than your video that you shared? 

 

Let me know how it goes, thanks!

Thanks for your response. I viewed the link as you suggested. No other files were copied, but what does show us the dropbox ad to get link, and the dropbox folder for this file. I am not permitted to have any advertising or writing in the sharable link. This link is for realtors to see a property.

Could you send me a screenshot of it, just so that I have a better visual of it? 

 

If you have any trouble attaching an image, you can send it to be as a shared link, instead.

Thank you! It works. I would never have figured that out on my own, or anyone else I consulted.
