Setting up Zap to do social sharing from YouTube triggered by new video upload.  I cannot get Zapier to identify the channel…. help suggests finding the character string between channel/dhjsa;hfdkjajk/videos

But I don’t get that as my channel has a custom id https://www.youtube.com/user/UKRowperfect/videos

I get error Unable to find the playlistId for the specified channel 

Suggestions?

Could a call out to the channel resource using a Zapier Code step help?
