It would be awesome if I could preview my files on the Amazon fire stick TV

It would be awesome if I could preview my files on the Amazon fire stick TV

Explorer | Level 4

Hello!  Is there any movement on a Dropbox app for Amazon Fire TV Stick?  I have thousands of photos and videos stored on Dropbox and it would be absolutely awesome to be able to directly access them from an app on Fire Stick to watch on TV.  The solutions I have found online are all either too complicated to make it worthwhile or just don't work.  Thank you!

Hello @emk1020

Thanks for your interest and feedback! 

Currently the Dropbox folder cannot be moved to a TV to have your files previewing directly from it.

All I can think of, is you could export the files from your Dropbox to a USB drive. Smart TVs can read from USB drives and you will be able to preview some file types.

I hope you get more responses from our users to this discussion, with more workarounds. 

See you around in the Community.

Cheers!

One possible solution is share link to a directory, containing all your photos and videos (if need - rearrange them), and get access everything using embedded Firefox browser. Isn't what you are looking for?!
