Quick Look: Pevac Video for Dropbox lets you stream MP4 videos that you have uploaded to your Dropbox account. This app has no free features, so you will need to subscribe in order to try it out.
To get started, launch the app and then follow the instructions to subscribe from within the channel. Note that you will need to allow Roku to share your name and email address with the developer. After purchasing a subscription, you may need to exit the channel and relaunch it - when we tested the channel, it did not automatically update after subscribing until we did so.
After relaunching, you will be prompted to allow the app to access your Dropbox account. You can use the QR code shown within the app, or go to video.dbx.roku.pevac.adreca.net/code and enter the code shown on the Roku screen. The app states that it "requires this link for read-only purpose, but with full rights in order to refresh access to your files each time you play." You will be providing the app with permission to view your Dropbox files and folders only within the Apps > RokuPevacVideo folder, which is automatically created when you authorize access, along with "basic information about your Dropbox account such as your username, email, and country."
After linking the app to your Dropbox account, you may need to relaunch the channel once again, at which time it will open to a menu showing thumbnails and file names for all of the MP4 files in the Apps > RokuPevacVideo folder.
We did some limited testing on this app and it worked flawlessly with several MP4 files uploaded to a Dropbox account.
