If you're syncing your files from your computer, just rename it as you normally would and the change will sync to Dropbox. If you're not syncing your files, you can log in to the Dropbox website and rename your files and folders there. Select a file, and Rename will appear in the menu to the right.

No. I want to name each video I download and then put it in a folder.

If you're downloading them to your computer, just rename as you would any other file on your computer. There's no difference.

If that's not what you're doing, then you'll need to explain, in detail, what it is you're doing and what you're trying to accomplish.
