Look at Dropbox as an online file storage network that has an extra giant hard drive that is capable of storing any type of file. If you upload a video to Dropbox, you can access that video from your Dropbox account on any device with Dropbox video player or any video player at all. If all video Creators save a video with the same video format then there will be no need for us to use different video players. In real life, there are different video formats and most applications out there can’t play all of these video formats by default. Taking Windows Media player as an example, it can play Windows Media files but can’t play real network RAM files. Applications that create videos can also save these videos with their own formats.
Dropbox allows people to download video files then view it on their computers. If you viewed your video after creating it before uploading it to Dropbox then you already have the required video player to play that video. If you wish to download and watch a video someone stored on Dropbox, you might need a Dropbox video player to play that video. If you do not have the required video player to play a Dropbox video you downloaded you can alternatively install a converter application. These converter applications will help you convert video files from one format to another format. When you are in search of the video converter app to install, ensure you get the one that can convert the format of the video you want to watch into a format that your media player supports.
