What do I need for a dropbox? (kind of)

Ok so I got a youtube channel and we are looking for a dropbox like site or service where people (or authorized users) can just drop a video to without having to log into an account and I can upload said file/video on my pc. Right now we are sharing a Gmail account and sending it to google drive but it has massive lack of security and anyone can change the info to that account. 


I am also looking at maybe having people log into a server or something like that and download it directly to the hard drive. ***keep in mind only 5 people max would be doing that for now, but more can come into the mix later so we might need a form of security later on.***


BTW - My name is Hank and I am studying Info Security at strayer University and work 2 jobs and youtube at the same time.

With Dropbox alone you have maybe two options:

  • Dropbox File requests. "Invite anyone to upload files to your Dropbox, even if they don’t have an account." Downside is I think you have to request each file. OR
  • Dropbox's share a folder function.

Would any of these work for you?
