Video upload to pinterest fails

Hello guys,

I am trying to connect my pinterest account to upload videos using pinterest API.

This is the how I have it configured:

But I encounter the error when checking if video was uploaded with status = failed

and therefore, creating the pin fails with the following error: * The operation failed with an error. [400] {“code”:1,“message”:“The media processing for the media_id failed”,“details”:{“param_name”:“media_id”}}

I have tried to look in pinterest doc why would a video fail but cannot find it anywhere, tried different videos, and I have a 250s delay between the upload of the video and the pin creation to ensure video uploads, but none of this is working.

If someone could help, I will be very grateful

Thank you very much in advance and have a very nice day!

I’m struggling with this too. Have you managed this?

Hello, yes I managed. Problem was when getting the file, I did an http instead of an http get file request and everything solved. I get error 201 from time to time when accessing pinterest API to request the video upload but I think it is an issue on Pinterest side.

I totally understand that you’re joining this discussion because you want to address specific points in this particular topic. No worries! You can always pose your questions in a new topic you create and then link to the other conversations you’re referring to.

Thanks for helping to keep the community organized and making it easier for everyone to share and find the information they need. :pray:
