Disable Video Download Option

I want to share my music video with folks who may or may not have a dropbox account, and I want the download option disabled so they can only veiw the video link and not download it. Is this posible? Thanks

Re: Disable Video Download Option

Hey Matt (@Matt_Stillert), it’s possible indeed, as you should be able to modify permissions (depending on your plan) for shared links (i.e. you can add a password, set an expiration date & disable downloads), that would be helpful in case you’d like to restrict access to sensitive shared content. 
Let me know how my advice works for you & I’ll follow-up with you a bit more closely on this discussion. Thanks for reaching out to us on our Community & enjoy your day until we talk again!
