Hi,
I have access to a music collection (.wav files of concert archive) which is in a shared folder on Dropbox. I do not have access to the dropbox account directly, and even if I did, would not want to mirror the whole collection locally. The wav files themselves are at the bottom of a two level directory structure, that looks like:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/Identifier1/Identifier2?dl=0/Concert_description/files.wav

The question is whether there is any plugin capable of accessting the files, preserving the directory structure, direct from their online location?

Ideally, I would want to just point the configuration at the dropbox base URL and access the hierarchy at Concert_description just like any local file storage.

Any tips greatly appreciated.

BR.

AFACIT there is no plugin which does map a Dropbox folder in to your
LMS. It would technically be possible of course. Dropbox offers a public
API to access content stored on their service.
