Hi I am new to Zap, enjoying it but find debugging hard across platforms..

my Zap:

trying to create a Youtube trigger to bookmark zap




two simple steps and the Zap seems to run ok in Testing mode..


creating the bookmark at Raindrop seems to work ok..  even the thumbnail works. 

however within the content there is a error, seems generated by Youtube
that it detects a automated 


"Unusual traffic from your computer network"

If devices on your network seem to be sending automated traffic to Google, you might see "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network."

What Google considers automated traffic

  • Sending searches from a robot, computer program, automated service, or search scraper

Using software that sends searches to Google to see how a website or webpage ranks on Google//

Please help, is Google Youtube not allowing the Zap since its automated?

Hi @erwinhuang, thanks for your question!

We sometimes see messages like this from YouTube for different reasons. The best thing to do in this case is to get in touch with the Zapier Support Team (using the Get Help form). They can take a look at the Zap logs and can dig into this deeper with you to hopefully get it up and running.
