How Do I automatically download a specific YouTube video and upload it to google drive?

 

Im trying to set up an agency workflow so that a YouTube video link is entered into a form, that YouTube video is then downloaded and uploaded to my team’s Shared Google Drive into a specific folder, I just have no idea how to get the video downloaded

Hi @Marshall 

Good question.

The YouTube Zap app doesn’t provide video download links so you’ll have to find some other app that may be able to download videos for a provided URL that work with Zaps.

FYI: Files larger than 100 MB may result in a time out error from the Zap.

I know haha thats my struggle, I cant find any apps that are on Zapier that would allow me to do this. I guess the next best thing is to spend hours learning about APIs and design one myself

Hey @Marshall! Troy is correct here in that there currently isn’t a way to to this as the download link isn’t included - sorry about that!
