when i upload a hidden video to youtube

I want to send out an email with the video link to some people.

But if i am correct the youtube connector when i upload a video, is only for public video's.

Why do you need my login data then if you only watch public videos.

 

Is this possible some how?

Re: when i upload a hidden video to youtube

Hi @Arno1975 , thank you for posting in the Flow community.

Can I check the detail on this one please as this sounds more like a Youtube/Permissions issue you have.

 

It sounds to me that you are more looking to embed the youtube video in an email or link it in the email so you may not need the Youtube connector at all?

 

p.s. The connector would need your log in credentials for any API based connector so that the whole suite of triggers and actions can function as expected, hence it needs to authenticate to your account,

Re: when i upload a hidden video to youtube

i think the problem is that the video is hidden, but when there is access to my account it should also be able to read the link of the hidden videos

Re: when i upload a hidden video to youtube

Hi @Arno1975 , you are correct, the issue is when the video is hidden. Your Flow looks great to me!

 

Best way to be sure though would be to test this with a video that is not hidden.

This will no doubt clarify a Youtube/Permission opposed to a Flow issue.

 

Flow can't do anything with permissions you have set within Youtube I'm afraid. If it's private, it's private I would suggest.

 

Does that clarify and answer your question perhaps?

Re: when i upload a hidden video to youtube

but hidden is not private there is a difference.

Someone of the team should look into that.

Hidden only means it can't be found on youtube but with the link everyone can see the video.

Private can only be viewed by myself. I understand there is a block on that one and even so if a video is set to private is should still be able to trigger an event.

So i don't understand why there is this limitation... it has persmission to look into my account and into my video's so it should be able to make a trigger no matter how i configured the video, publik, hidden or private

Hi @Arno1975 

Maybe I am missing something, are you saying the Youtube video can't be seen or are you saying the Flow isn't being triggered by the upload?

 

Thanks, Alan

Re: when i upload a hidden video to youtube

it only triggers when the video is set to public, but there is no solid reason why it should only trigger when it is public. It should also be triggered when it is set to hidden or private

Re: when i upload a hidden video to youtube

Hi @Arno1975 , ok I see.

 

I found it difficult to tell from your initial post what the core issue was here.

 

I am now understanding the following:

You are having issues triggering your Flow using the "When I upload a video" trigger from the Youtube connector. This only triggers when the video is public. You would like it to be triggered when ithe video is set to hidden or private also. I understand you have tested this and clarify that this is how it works.

 

Please post your request as an idea at Flow Ideas or if you feel it is a bug, please use I Found a bug. As whilst I understand and empathise with your frustrations this looks to be by design.
