Dropbox released its 2.1.4 update for Android 4.0 yesterday, bringing with it video streaming and Korean language support. Streaming a video is simple in execution — you just select one within Dropbox and it will begin playing rather than presenting a download prompt. During our brief tests, the video streaming capability supported a variety of file formats, including MP4, M4V, and MKV, and users can still download files by tapping "Export" and then "Save to SD card." For those lucky Galaxy S III users that get 48GB of extra Dropbox space, or even HTC One users that get a 23GB bonus, this update offers a good alternative to storing relatively large video files locally.
