Hello community,
Today with Zapier and the YouTube module, it's impossible to update the title, description & cie of a YouTube video.
Has anyone tried to get around this problem using this platform?  : https://1001fx.com/
If so, perhaps someone could explain how to do it?

I'd like to be able to update the title of a YouTube video if there's been a change in an SQL line (title).

Thanks in advance,

 

Best regards,

Mediapole.

Hi @mediapole 

Good question.

You can use the YouTube API: https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs/videos/update

Zap action: YouTube - API Request

Thanks @Troy Tessalone 

I think the YouTube API is the solution to correctly update the metas I want to change.

Just before you replied I made two requests via a webhook.
Before running them, I was at 50/2000 used tasks.
Now I'm at 2000/2000 and I can't launch any more zaps.
I've sent an e-mail to Zapier to find out what's going on.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance,

Mediapole company.

Check your Zap Runs history details: https://zapier.com/app/history/

If the timestamps on the Zap Runs are all the same, then either you did some bulk action to trigger the Zap to run or you may have created an infinite loop.

Yes, I did create an infinite loop..

You can reach out to Zapier Support to see if they will issue Task credits, otherwise you’d would need to upgrade your Zapier plan, or wait until the next billing cycle for the monthly Tasks to reset.

Thank you for your reply. I have written to them hoping for a small commercial gesture.

Thanks again for your help and the speed/relevance of your answers !
