I’m not sure if this is a stupid question:

at the following page:,-File%20Name&text=Enter%20the%20name%20of%20the%20file%20you%20want%20to%20transcribe.&text=Enter%20the%20data%20of%20the%20file%20you%20want%20to%20transcribe.&text=Select%20or%20map%20the%20model%20you%20want%20to%20use.,-Refer%20to%20the

Is this page:

I am receiving a 400 error on my Whisper module.

I don’t know what I should be putting in the “File Data” field.

Any help would be awesome.

All the best.


Welcome to the Make community!

To map file data into that field, you need to first use another module to download the file.

Where is your file located?

Usually we can use the HTTP “Get a file” module.

Hi samliew, thank you for your reply.

Yes indeed

The file is in my onedrive - and I ran the module so I could map something into the openAI module

but am unsure which one to choose or what the “file data” field is asking for.

You need one more module in-between.

OneDrive “Download a File” to get the file data.

To close this thread. I got this to work via HTTP and also via the OpenAI module.

The problem was the audio type. I had a m4a audio file object - and I tried converting it to mp3 which worked. Which was odd because in the OpenAI documentation it says that m4a audio is an accepted format. To convert I used Adobe Media Encoder.

for your reference:

All the best.
