Hi,

 

I’m trying to get Zapier to send a video uploaded to a Google Drive folder to the post to a Facebook page.

 

The error I’m getting is when testing the ‘Create Page Video’. I’ve tried all the links Google Drive produces and can’t get any to work. Does anyone know which link it is that would work or if I need to do anything differently? Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

Is the video publicly available in the Google Drive? With that, I would try the web content link but I don’t think any will work if the video in Google Drive has restricted access

Confirming the GDrive file must be publicly accessible in order to be used in a Zap.

You can check this by viewing the sharing permissions for the file or folder containing the file.

You can also check this by opening the file link in a private browser to see if it renders.

 

Also, large video files can cause the Zap to timeout and not process.

If the size of a file you’re trying to send in an action step is too large, timeout errors may occur. Check that the size of the file you’re trying to send is within the limits of the action app.

Got it working, thanks - the video had to be under 100mb

 

Thanks again :)
