Canvas video embed from Dropbox

New member | Level 2

Hello. 

I am a Canvas administrator and i am trying to embed a video from dropbox which just wont play. 

Am i doing something wrong?

I have uploaded the video on my Dropbox account and embeded it on my Canvas page via the insert/edit media.

I'm assuming you're using a Share Link to do this? If so, and assuming it's even possible at all, you'll want to change the link so it ends with ?raw=1 instead of ?dl=0.

Links ending in ?dl=0 will produce a preview page, rather than link directly to the file.

Sounds like a browser loading issue. 

Both links worked for me. Please try opening the link in another browser or an incognito window. Do you get the same result? 

Let us know. 

Thanks!
