I’m looking for a way to have users upload large video files to our dropbox account through a web interface and form submit from our own website.
The tutorials I’ve looked at which use the dropbox API seem to upload a file from a local directory with an absolute file path, but not through a form submit. I also found a couple of plugins which do work, but they seem to be uploading the files to our web site first, and then passing them on to dropbox. The problem with this is that our web hosting has an max file size upload limit of 20mb and we are looking to allow uploads of around 100-150mb.
Is there an alternative method to upload the files through a web interface directly to dropbox without them having to come via our website? Or is this something that dropbox api doesn’t allow?
