How do I download dropbox file using browser plugin?

  • Hello World,

    Can the browser's plugin "invoke download" action be used to download a file from dropbox to the users android device? And if it can, do I just enter the normal dropbox adress and the file name, or is there more to it?

    Thank you.

    tricky question...android use browsers just like pc...

    if you export game like HTML5 and use Chrome browser on android and append ?dl=1 to the end of your Dropbox Link

    so

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/harit7t63rmhksn/Untitled-1.png[/code:12rr2obu]
    becomes
    [code:12rr2obu]https://www.dropbox.com/s/harit7t63rmhksn/Untitled-1.png?dl=1[/code:12rr2obu]
    this works..for Chrome..but not for Opera Mini(on my phone..)
    
    I try to replace [code:12rr2obu]www.dropbox.com[/code:12rr2obu] with [code:12rr2obu]dl.dropboxusercontent.com[/code:12rr2obu]
    so..link looks like
    [code:12rr2obu]https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/harit7t63rmhksn/Untitled-1.png?dl=1[/code:12rr2obu]
    this works on Chrome & Opera(but Opera shows pop-up window to confirm download..on my phone)
    
    I think it's best that you test it with several phones and several browsers...
    
    and if use wrappers.....good luck
