Hi there @lkwizzy, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

From what I could find, the Dropbox app isn't one of the currently supported apps for Chromecast. You can check out some more info on the supported apps from here.

 

Perhaps you can try opening the video from the Chrome browser on your phone and Cast the tab? The steps to do this are outlined here.

 

Let me know if this helps!

Dropbox iphone app and chromecast

I have photos and videos on Dropbox that I like to access "on-the-go" via the iPhone app or broadcast on the TV. Is there a connectivity option between the Dropbox app (iPhone) and Chromecast? Have any of you worked out a solution? Thank you

Current Dropbox version (256.2.4) does not support ChromeCast since IOS 14.

 

Dropbox on IOS lacks the right to access the local network and doesn't let IOS know it needs this access for its player which is why Dropbox is not found in the IOS privacy settings. I used this feature daily until yesterday (on my previous IOS 12 phone), I need this feature for quality control of audio files. Hope some devs will 'hear' us and schedule this small fix in the next update.
