I was looking at the zaps for Youtube and there appears to be only 4 options.

  1. New vid in channel
  2. New vid by username
  3. New vid by Search
  4. New vid by playlist

All these descriptions refer to uploaded videos only

I'm looking to trigger something when a stream goes live. Anyone have experience with the YT integration?

Hi @moxy

The only way to do this would be for you to build your own custom Youtube integration using Zapier's Developer Platform:

Having a quick look, Youtube does have a Live Streaming API:

You'll need to see if there is a specific endpoint you can poll for a when a stream starts.

@ikbelkirasan who's pretty active on this forum may be able to help with this.

Has somebody implemented it?
