Hi there
 

I’ve setup a zap to upload vidéos from Vimeo to Youtube when ‘New video of mine’ but I get this error 

I’ve setup this action

 

Do you have any idea of what is wrong ?

Thank you in advance for your help

Hey @artnum!

Did you manage to solve this issue in the Upload Video to YouTube action?

I found some helpful links relating to that YouTube error:

This may be because .mp4 files are not necessarily formatted according to YouTube's specs as explained in this thread: https://support.google.com/youtube/thread/1686164?msgid=1686235

MP4 is a "container" and can contain data encoded in different codecs. YouTube recommends H.264 video with AAC audio.

You can see YouTube's recommendations here: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1722171?hl=en

Hope this helps!
