Viewing a video from Dropbox on my site


#1

Hi,
I want to be able to show a video on my website. These videos are contained inside my own Dropbox account. I have created multiple versions of these video so that the video renders on multiple browsers example: mp4, ogv and webm.

To be able to share the video I can generate a link or url to the video. The issue is I don't know how to point to these three links.

Hi @efj

I would use the html embed widget so you can use custom html. I would then you the HTML5 video tag.

<video width="100%" height="auto" controls>
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

Also you have to replace www.dropbox.com by dl.dropboxusercontent.com for the links to work.
