Link Browser Services

The Link Browser will allow you to upload a file into Spotloader directly from a web link without needing to download the spot to your computer. In this article we will go over some of the supported services and any special instructions you may need to follow for them to work properly.

Unfortunately, WeTransfer has decided to cut the cord on their API, so we are no longer able to integrate directly with their file sharing platform. This article explains why they have come to this decision. WeTransfer links may continue to work in the Link Browser despite this change but we are unable to guarantee their continued support.
