how to access Gopro files stored in dropbox for editing in quik

Hi - I have a load of ski holiday videos in dropbox awaiting editing. I would like to edit using Quik, but everytime I try to download the files to my phone it says the file type is not supported.

Can I load the files into Quik from the app if they are stored in dropbox? If so, how?

Many thanks

Hi @bravetree27476

 

I have tested a couple of files from my Dropbox.

Downloaded the files to my phone.

Quik for mobile was able to detect the files.

 

What phone are you using?

Have you tried downloading the files to another phone?

 

Thanks!

Re: how to access Gopro files stored in dropbox for editing in quik

Thanks for your reply. I'm using an iphone 6.  

For clarification (excuse my potential lack of knowledge), I click the plus button to start new project, then it wants me to select photos / videos to use.  Quik defaults to selecting from the photos on my phone. When clicking the highlighted 'all photos' the only other options to select are GoPro plus and Accounts - I see no option for Dropbox...

Is there something I need to enable in settings for it to see dropbox files?

Thanks

You need to download the files to your phone first.

Re: how to access Gopro files stored in dropbox for editing in quik

and thats where the challenge lies, as when I try to download to phone from dropbox i get a msg saying file type is not recognised or similar... so back to square 1.

It would be great if Quik could access dropbox from the app...

Agreed. Strange that the file would be unrecognizable as you aren't limited to GoPro photos or videos with the Quik app.
