Hi, which website file sharing servers are supported for “Direct Link” Option!
I have tried Google Drive, Dropbox and few others but never worked
Also if me and friends have same video file on our computer how can we watch same movie together using your w2g website. Thanks
The direct link is not limited to specific servers but to specific file types. Currently the following types are supported: (.mp4|.mp3|.aac|.wav|.webm|.ogv|.mpd|.m3u8) The URL has to end with one of these file extensions.
Hi Florian, are you able to suggest a few websites/servers that you know would work with direct link function please? All I know are Google Drive and Dropbox… If you know of any that works that would really help me, thank you!
If you want to host content that you own, you have to make it available as https URL. So basically you need a webserver / web hosting or a cloud drive that allows https downloads. For basic usage any web hosting package with SSL encryption will do. Im not sure if Google Drive supports that. A search for “Google Drive video hosting” might help.
Please host and share only content that you own or have proplery licensed!
