So I am having trouble figuring out how to post a link in dropbox that plays when you click on it---not take you to a download page? Carlos jon3b wrote on 04/27/13 at 15:16:23: The primary functional difference is https://www.dropbox_? takes you to a download page, https://dl.dropbox_? forces an automatic download which will prompt a media player to initiate and play the file when the link ends with an audio/visual file extension. Also, Dropbox has discontinued the automatic creation of a Public folder. Go to: https://www.dropbox.com/help/16/en scroll down to "Creating a Public Folder" and do the "click here". to enable that functionality.
