What are the steps needed to make a folder & all fines in that folder public for viewing/executing (videos)?

Hi @hambone47,

The first thing coming in mind is create a share link to the folder and put this link in some social media, for example. 😜 Doesn't this work for you? There are many other possibilities but here is the simplest one. 😉

Hope this gives direction.

Actually, I guess I did not explain my problem very well.   I have a video here: https://www.dropbox.com/preview/Panama/GH016508.MP4?role=personal

that should be public (I want anyone to be able to view the video).   Yet, when someone

attempts to view it, it wants viewers to sign-into Dropbox or create an account.   I want it to be transparent.

Hi @hambone47,

In my previous post I said "first thing coming in mind is create a share link to the folder"! The same is valid for independent files. Did you try it? Seems not!

Your link is NOT shared link and that's why can't be public! Follow the instruction for such types of links and the result gonna be better, for sure. 😉

Hope this helps.
