Use Dropbox to Import Video Files

Videos saved in a Dropbox account can be imported into the Media bins in Livestream Studio through a simple integration.

For the best experience, we recommend simplifying your Dropbox folder structure to no more than 1 or 2 subfolders. Multiple subfolders can cause extended sync times with Dropbox

Connect Dropbox to Livestream Studio

Start by clicking the gear wheel in the upper right corner to enter Settings.

Navigate to the Dropbox tab.

Click Connect Dropbox.

Your browser will open. Sign in to your Dropbox account in order to connect it to Livestream Studio.

When authorization is successful, return to Livestream Studio.

The settings will indicate that you are logged in. Click Select Folders.

Choose a Local Folder from your computer's hard drive. This will allow any files you save to your Dropbox, such as transcoded videos, to also be saved locally.

Then choose the folder within your Dropbox where the videos you want to use are stored. This can be either your general Dropbox or a folder within your Dropbox (in this example, "Videos"). Click Save when you are done.

Your Dropbox account will sync to Livestream Studio.

 

Make sure that Use Files from Dropbox is checked. Then click Save.

Import Videos from Dropbox

 

Navigate to one of your Media bins. Click the + button in the lower left corner of the module.

Your Dropbox folder will open. Click on the video you wish to import, then click Select.

The video will start transcoding in the media bin. When it is finished, you will be able to play it back as normal.
