Video Trigger?

Hi all :slight_smile:

Watching this video - and wondering what the trigger is to start this automation. Somewhere they are uploading the video which sends it to OpenAI and gets a transcript etc. I can do the rest but curious as to the beginning trigger?

Any ideas?



You can search for new videos by using the Search endpoint.

Search by publishedAfter parameter : last scenario run datetime.

You should be able to integrate the endpoints in Make using the app’s universal module (Make an API call) or generic HTTP “Make a request” module.

If you need assistance in setting up the app’s universal module, or the generic HTTP module, please provide additional information about what you have tried with regards to the external service’s Developer API Reference – how you are setting the connection up, a link to the endpoint are you trying to connect to, and what errors you are encountering.

You can also complete this brand new course/tutorial in the Make Academy on how to use external APIs — API calls with HTTP modules

Thanks for the reply. But it sounded like he was getting the info before publishing the video - e.g. getting the title and description of the video?

I don’t think it’s as simple as how it was described in the blog post. It’s just a simplified explanation of how all the scenarios work to streamline their workflow, but I don’t think it’s just a single scenario.

Not only that, OpenAI doesn’t have a video transcription module, so I’m sure some other steps are involved.

In that case the video (or even audio) could be uploaded to a Google Drive folder (for example), and then a transcription is made from that, before the title and description is generated by OpenAI.

Usually we shouldn’t automate the uploading of videos to YouTube, because that would quickly max out the data transfer quota.

What I suggested in my previous post could be a more suitable scenario trigger, because then you can manually upload the video to Youtube (unlisted), then from there your scenario is triggered, and the meta data of the video can then be edited/modified by Make before automatically publishing.
