I'm trying to sync the root folder of Dropbox in my Raspberry Pi (raspbmc) in a external hard drive. It doesn't sync and I get the following error in the kodi log:

I'm using the lastest version of dbmc, 0.9.3.

Do you know why is this happening?

Best regards,

I just started Dbmc yesterday and still all I see when I select my account is the folders for the picture files I have in Dropbox. I do see dates when I go to view images downloaded from my phone file, but when I select any of these nothing appears. When I select on of the files I get all of the .mov items in that file, but none will play. Is there anything else I need to do/

HI all!

I try to run Dbmc on Android 4.4.2 Kodi 15.1, Raspberry B and Raspberry 2, After adding the account, i get on all three a Error Messages if i try to start Dbmc.
I get a pop-up "Dbmc (Dropbox add-on) error, check the log for more information".
Also i can't see the account.
is there anny known bug?

I solved it myself :-)
Log reading helps!
The reason was the character "ß" in my account Name! I changed it into "ss" an did the account adding procedure again -> it works!

I'm getting an error on RPI2 on OE 6 as well. Are you guys on Pi using OE? I'm not sure if its a Python issue in OE you know as I had errors from other addons using python too. Mine is during sync which works to start with then breaks later. Weirdly I can browse the remote folder if I go into dbmc its just the sync that isnt working.

Any idea why I can't sync this properly??

I am trying to understand the "sync" concept within this addon. I had it set to Sync = on but found my USB stick (I am using OpenElec) almost full with synched Dropbox content.

What I want is to be able to just stream the content from Dropbox. But when I turn Sync = off then I see no files in the addon.

Am I missing something?

Trying to use this plugin at the office so all of our designers can drop their mockups a in a folder, and we can view them on the big screen in the conference room. It doesn't seem to want to display any images, though. When I navigate to a folder with images, it does the caching, and as I scroll through the list, it shows the thumbnails, but if I click any of them, it doesn't open the image. Videos work great, though. Any ideas?
