Hi there @AmirIsAuto,

Welcome to the Community! 🎉

I did some digging into this, and it seems that the “New Video” trigger you are using is a bit outdated, as usernames are no longer required for YouTube channels. You can find more information about it in this article:

I found a bug report to remove this as an option for this integration, and have added you as an affected user to that report. While we can’t provide an ETA on when will this get fixed. We will let you know via email once it is!

In the meantime, I recommend switching to the "New Video in Channel" trigger instead. It functions in a similar way but doesn't require a username, but the Channel ID instead. By making this switch, your Zap should start firing correctly whenever a new video is added.

Hopefully, this helps! 😊
