Viewing Published HTML and swf Storyline from Dropbox on a Macbook

Jun 20, 2013

Hi everyone!

I have a problem and would love to solve it. I am working with a company, and need to be able to view their storyline files from dropbox for editing and image retrieval purposes.

I have a macbook running on 10.6.8, and I have used both safari and google chrome. I cannot open either the html, html5, or swf file from dropbox to view it. I have attached screenshots of what happens. A colleague of mine has a macbook pro also running on 10.7, and she can view the said files. I have a flash player (although unsure if it is working correctly, and I downloaded a swf reader to no avail) Is there something I need to change in dropbox settings? Is the fact I have the free subscription to dropbox an issue here?

Please help! Really appreciate any advice on this.

Welcome to E-Learning Heroes, Sue!

First, you might want to try uploading the content to a different host, just to narrow down the issue. If you'd like, you're welcome to try using Tempshare or SCORM Cloud to see if the content loads properly for you. 

If it does work properly on there, it might be an issue with hosting it on Dropbox. If it doesn't work with those two options, it might be an issue with either the Flash version on your machine or the web browser.

Can you try that out and let me know how it goes, please?
