Can Zapier automatically download tl;dv videos to GoogleDrive?

I would like to trigger when a file is uploaded to tl;dv and always import video files to the same folder in GoogleDrive.

However, even if I pass the URL to be output from tl;dv to File and set the convert to False, the video is never generated.

Is there any way to store the videos in GoogleDrive?

Hi @kenIguchi ,welcome to the Community! 

That’s strange, it should be possible to upload video files. Are you seeing any errors when you attempt to upload the file to Google Drive? And does it create it as a Google Doc instead of a video file or is no file created at all?

Also, if you copy and paste the link provided by the tl;dv trigger into a web browser (that’s not logged into your tl;dv account) does it allow you to access/download the video? Asking as the link would need to be publicly-accessible download link to the file in order for Google Drive to be able to upload it. See our Send files in Zaps guide for more details.

I look forward to your reply! 🙂
