I always use Premier Pro to produce my videos and I export them straight to my Dropbox. Then, from the app, I download them to my phone. One of the videos, which I've now saved and exported several through several attempts, will still not download from the Dropbox app because of the "type" (whatever that means) of video it is. BUT it is the same "type" of video as all of the other ones! What am I doing wrong?

Hi there @katielouiserose, sorry to hear that you're also having trouble with downloading your file.
Out of curiosity, could you clarify the following for me?
Let me know what you find - thanks!
I'm also experiencing this problem on my laptop. It's a video file shared with me. I can view it fine inside Dropbox. I click the ellipsis, download, and end up with an mpeg4 file that Quicktime says is unviewable. Adobe Premiere says the codec is unsupported.
What's going on here?
Hi there @roseponnekanti, thanks for nudging us on this discussion.
Out of curiosity, have you tried downloading the file from another browser? Do you get the same behavior if you do?
Let me know what you find, cheers!
I have a similar problem.
Videos uploaded after processing with iMovie now will not download. I have tried the ellipse and clicking on the 3 dots methods as well as clicking on the file on my device to download. In all cases, the download appears to stsrt but fails just before completing.
I dare not upload anything else to Dropbox in fear of losing it, as I appear to have done with these personally valuable videos from an expensive adventure holiday.
Any suggestions gratefully received!
Hey, I am still having this problem. I'm an editor and get sent large files to download. When it comes to video files they always stop at 15.1gb (if the file is bigger than that) and the file is'nt viewable. I have plenty of space so that isn't the issue, there is no error message. The last few times I have had to suggest to clients to use annother service instead because it didn't work even if I tried a few times. I'm using a Macbook pro and have tried different browsers, I also tried paying and upgrading my dropbox account but the issues still remains.
Hey @delirious_dave, thanks for nudging us on this thread and sorry to hear about your frustration.
Out of curiosity, are you having trouble downloading specific files or any type of file?
Also, since you mention that others have tried downloading as well, do they get any error messages or does the download progress bar just freeze?
Keep us posted!
