I’ve also seen this in zoom, using the zoom->youtube path. the issue is a multi-part video from Zoom isn’t parsed as, say, two or three videos.

Hi there @ryjones,

Welcome to the Community! 🎉

I have split your reply to a new topic. I hope you don’t mind!

I did some digging into this, and it seems like Zoom produces up to 4 different videos of the same meeting, and sends them over to us as line items. When you put one of the line items into a file field, we zip it up and send all 4 files, which Youtube would reject.

You can use a Utilities in Formatter by Zapier - Line-items to Text function and just grab one of the recordings. Like so:

You can learn more about converting line-items to text here:

Hopefully, this helps! 😊

It produces n videos, each containing up to seven files. Zoom is… a pain. Thanks for the pointer!
