Can someone tell me why it won’t publish? I want it to publish a Youtube video immediately everytime a video is uploaded to my Instagram. Thanks!

Hey there, @Katara88! Thanks for reaching out. Sorry to hear you’re running into that!

I took a quick peek and it looks like there’s a URL being passed into the video field.

If I’m not mistaken, YouTube requires an actual file object in order to post. I’m not certain which Instagram trigger is being used or if the file object is included in it but if it is that might be worth trying in lieu of the URL. 🙂

I hope that helps! Keep us posted! 

Hi, I tried other ones as well, but still have the same problem. I have contacted Zapier support. Thanks!
