Dropbox API and use Zapier to upload in youtube

Dropbox API and use Zapier to upload in youtube

I use zapier to upload the dropbox videos directly to the youtube automatically.
I use dropbox api and use http request to upload video from mobile/web. I want to get the uploaded youtube video URL in the response of video uploading. Is there a way to get the uploaded youtube link in to the backend?

The Dropbox API itself doesn't offer anything like this unfortunately. (It doesn't know about your Zapier integration when you're just uploading to Dropbox via the Dropbox API.)

So, is there any way to get the link dynamically in program? Any logic?

Since Zapier, and not Dropbox, does the actual upload to YouTube, Dropbox doesn't have access to the YouTube URL. You may be able to write or configure something to get it from Zapier, but we can't offer support for Zapier as it's not made by Dropbox.

I was looking for something else, but I'll just mention that I have a zap where any time a new video comes on to a specific channel, that is the zap trigger.  So the zap is triggered by a new video and then it adds info from that video to AirTable (you can use anything though, but I recommend a spreadsheet app).  One of the options for adding info from the new upload is the URL.

Simply put it would be another zap:  Trigger = New video uploaded to channel > Result = Info from that new video added to a spreadsheet.  

 

You can add to a spreadsheet at least: Title, Description, Watch URL, Length
