I’m getting this error ‘Attachment has an unsupported mime type’ when I’m trying to add google drive files in media url fields of Hootsuite integration. I saw this question here but the topic is closed without clarifying the solution clearly.

Hi @empowr 

Good question.

We would need to see detailed screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured to have more context.

Here’s the screenshots


Alternate Link is the drive link of a video file

The Media URL expects a file object or a file url that is a public direct download link.

Try using a different variable and test.


I added a ‘downloadURL’ variable of file, as it is also mentioned below the media url field that it expects downloadURL. But after adding that url I’m getting this error - The app returned "The request is missing a valid API key.".
