    Greetings as this is my first post as an Android User!

    So I have a Galaxy S3 Sprint Jellybean. To my surprise, I received an extra 50 GB of storage on my Dropbox account.

    So I decided to use it lol. I uploaded about 4 movies onto it. The only thing is, when I go to Dropbox from my phone to stream the videos, it will ONLY play the first 15 minutes.

    Is there any way around this? Is this even correct? I would hate to have to download the files onto my phone to watch the whole thing.

    I have an iPod Touch 5 and I tested this as well on it. There was no restrictions streaming, I was able to skim to any point in the 2 hours movie with no problems.

    Thanks for your comments and advice in advance

    You can get around this by using AllShare Play. Link your dropbox in the allshare play app. And voila, you can play more than 15 minutes, uncompressed if you want to. Make sure you have the file itself in the AllShare Play video folder (it gets created when you link the dropbox account, just move the video files there). It won't recognize folders with video. Just video files.

    In order to view full videos on DB you first have to download the video. If you just try to watch the video online you will only get about 15minutes, download it and you get the whole video.

    Aaron, you can now stream the complete video off dropbox with some apps. AllShare Play and ES File Explorer allow you to link cloud solutions and stream the entire video without downloading the entire file first.
