When a video is hot in reddit, download to google drive, then when a new file is in google drive, post it to twitter.

All of this works except when my mp4 goes to post to twitter, it errors with the following:

Make sure to reference the description under the File field.

Unable to tell the file size for this example shown in the screenshot.


When I add the description it says ‘no data’ next to it, for your reference the file is 3.9 MB, its a 6 second video

Unless the GDrive File has meta data already, it likely won’t have a value for the Description data point.


Consider opening a ticket with Zapier Support for further troubleshooting:

Thanks for your help Troy, is the description field necessary for the mp4 file to be found? I’m not quite following that part
