Zoom -> Google Drive: MIME Type as "Text"

Hey fellow Zapier fanatics :) 

 

I’m using the pre-built “Upload new Zoom recordings to Google Drive” Zap  and running into an odd issue. When uploading to Google Drive, the file type uploads as .TXT. I’ve attempted to force the file type to .MP4, though since the mimeType is text/plain, it of course breaks the file.

 

Anyone had luck with getting this Zap to work? Below are the details:

Anyone had this issue or can think of a way to resolve?

 

Thanks a ton!

Quick update: Resolved!

 

To fix it, I had to change two items:

  1. Under Zoom Settings → Recording → Only select “Record active speaker with shared screen” and de-select record audio file and transcript settings. This ensures that only a single file (.MP4) records.
  2. On the Zap → “Upload File in Google Drive” → Set up action → Set file to “Video Files Download URL”

Actually, I’m not sure if #1 is necessary, though #2 certainly is. Hopefully this helps someone out there in the future. 

Thanks!

Thanks so much for letting us know how you made this work - awesome stuff!

I did this but it still only downloaded a txt file… :(  Have attached part of it as screen shot 

This was happening to me too. I resolved the issue by deselecting the password settings in Zoom (Under the Recording tab, make sure both Only authenticated users can view cloud recordings` and Require password to access shared cloud recordings are turned off). Full details and screenshots are in this article:

Thanks for sharing that alternative solution here, @Jennahsn


@ekequest, if you’re still running into issues you might want to try tweaking the settings, as Jennahsn mentioned, to see if that does the trick? :)

Hi Everyone, I did all this steps but nothing changes I still receive the same text file instead of the recording in my gdrive. HELP

Hey @Admin GA, welcome to the Community! :)

I’m so sorry the suggestions posted in this thread didn’t work out. I’d really recommend reaching out to our Support Team about this and mention the steps that you’ve already tried. They can dig into the set up and logs for your Zaps and will be better able to help troubleshoot this with you. The best way to reach them is via the Get Help form.
