How to find username for YouTube channels?

I am trying to make it so that when a YouTube channel gets/uploads a new video, that it would already send a message to a channel in my Discord server.


I have been able to do that with a certain channel, when I click on the channel it has a unique /channel/username but for other ones its a bunch of jumbled letters and numbers and stuff.


How can I link them if they are like that?


Also a followup question, in Discord when you put a link a video comes out where you can play it directly on Discord, I tried multiple ways to format it so that when the message comes in the video can be played but is it cause it’s from a Zapier Bot that the video doesn’t “unfurl” ? 


Hope someone can help me this is my first time using Zapier and submitting a question.
