Is there a way to host video on Dropbox?

I tried to create an interactive video through the Wordpress plugin using a Dropbox sharing link, and that doesn't work. I don't want to host publically on Youtube, and my video is too large to load in the free Vimeo account. Is there any way to make Dropbox workj as the video source? Do I have any other alternatives?

Hi gertzse!

Unfortunately, if there's no particular API support available, we can only retrieve videos that you have a direct link to, which you can usually easily spot by a common video file suffix at the end (e.g. .mp4, .avi, .webm, etc.). In other words: Dropbox sharing links won't work.

The video doesn't have to be listed publicly on YouTube to be used in IV however. You can also use "unlisted" videos.
