Dropbox has a few options for different URL parameters to get a downloadable file from their service. These involve either adding query parameters to the URL or modifying the URL directly. Currently the Wistia Upload API only supports the directly modified URLs.

Examples of supported URLs:

  • Adding dl before dropbox in the URL so the link looks like https://dl.dropbox.com/s/<dropbox-id>/<asset-name>.mp4
  • Adding raw/ after the /s/ in the URL so the link looks like https://dropbox.com/s/raw/<dropbox-id>/<asset-name>.mp4

Examples of unsupported URLs:

  • Adding ?dl=1 or ?dl=0 as query parameters
  • Adding ?raw=1 as a query parameter
