    If you want to open that file and remove the period after $wpsdb_delete_settings[$t]->option_id OR you can re-download the plugin as I have uploaded a fixed version. Sorry about that.

    I don't have a video, but there is a section in the admin where it tells you how to set the file extensions. Each file extension should be input with NO period and a space between each.

    I did exactly what is stated and still having an issue. The browser is embedded into the website. I am able to browse for the files. I select a video I want to upload. My curser circles for a little bit. The page refreshes and I have no video in drop box.

    The file is likely larger than you host will allow. Most hosts I have seen cap you @ 2mb

    Do I call bluehost and ask them for an increase in bandwidth or storage? I do not know what to ask them.
    Thanks for all the help.

    I just tried to upload a picture which is 91.1 KB and the page refreshed. It came back blank with no content in it. I went to dropbox and there was no file either.

    Its likely a setting with your host. I have had other users tell me they had issues with bluehost. Try contacting them and see what they tell you.

    OK. I just got off the phone with Bluehost. The plugin sends all files excpt videos to my sever at BLUEHOST. It does not send anything at all to dropbox. Path in dropbox folder is correct and copied from the shared file from drop box. What could it be now?

    The gentleman at Bluehost said if you know of a specific setting that would need to be changed he would look into it. We have unlimited bandwidth and unlimited storage on the server. I rechecked everything again on here and all seems to be done correctly. Thanks for trouble shooting this with me.

    We have no restrictions on the server.

    It could be any number of things preventing it from sending the file to dropbox. If you have verified the connection is not being blocked by a firewall on your server and would like to try an alternative method, In the plugin admin, Change the

    Use CURL, PHP oAuth or PEAR oAuth?
    option to
    PEAR oAuth
    and watch this YouTube Video for instructions on how to add the necessary libraries to your php installation. If this fails, You should get someone to take a look at your server and troubleshoot this problem for you.

    Has this program been used to upload video to drop box? Everything works other than uploading videos. I have been on this for a week and I would love to use the program. It is holding me back and i want to make this work. Thank you for your help in advance.

    I have uploaded all types of files using this plugin. The problem comes down to how much memory your server has, the execution timeout limit set in php.ini, the post size limit set in php.ini and the upload size limit set in php.ini. When a user uploads a file, it has to be stored in the memory of the server before it can be sent to dropbox. It is a horrible limitation but nothing I can do to get around it. I created a plugin for SugarSync that does the same thing as this plugin but does not suffer from the same limitations. If your not married to dropbox you might want to check it out. If dropbox is your only option, I would strongly suggest hiring someone to take a look at your server/php configuration.
