The Dropbox integration claims to support video files: https://miro.com/marketplace/dropbox/. However, when trying to add an mp4 to the board via dropbox I only get a “file not supported” error. Which video files are actually supported?

Hi @arnomi,

Thanks for your question!

Integration with Dropbox allows you to import files, images, and documents from your Dropbox account and add them to the boards for further discussion and collaboration. These are the formats Miro boards currently support

File type File formats
     Images bmpgifsvg (as a solid image), jpegjpgpngpsd, heic, heif
     Tables and spreadsheets xls, xlsx, csvods
     Text documents  docdocxodt, rtf
     Presentations ppt, pptx, odp

 

 

Unfortunately, uploading video files to Miro is not currently supported. As a workaround, you can upload a video to a video-sharing platform and embed it to your board.

Hope this helps. Have a great day!

Hi @Nikita Granin,

thanks for the clarification.

The documentation of the plugin is a bit misleading then. There it states

Key features:

  • Support of images, videos, PDF files, Google Drive documents, and MS Office files

It would probably be good to clarify this directly on the plugin page.
