Download it to your machine
Upload it to Youtube as normal.

There isnt a transfer tool I'm afraid.

Mark, THANK YOU for the quick response.
But HOW do I download it to my machine?
I'm running windows xp.
I was sent this video and it is in my paid dropbox account.
So, how do I get it out of my dropbox account and possibly onto my desktop.
I want/need to post this video on youtube.
Many thanks.

Use the youtube "browse" button and go locate the file, which is in your dropbox folder.

GOT IT !
Here's what I did.
Instead of going to my account at dropbox.com I went
to my desktop and clicked on the dropbox icon.
Found the video file I wanted and click/dragged and dropped to my desktop.
Then I went to my youtube account page and clicked on "find file" and found it on my desktop.
The moral of my story : cannot do it from my account on dropbox.com
Have to locate it on dropbox on desk top.
Got It !
Thanks for the suggestions.

There is a web service which does exactly this - move large files from your Dropbox to YouTube, that is. Check out http://boxconnect.org.

I tried http://boxconnect.org and it worked great to transfer huge video files directly from Dropbox to YouTube. Thank you!

I have not been able to connect to boxconnect.org for several months.

I used boxconnect.org two days ago to move two videos from Dropbox to YouTube and it worked perfectly.
