It also seamlessly stores the results in an Airtable, offering easy access and organization of the extracted information. Say goodbye to the drudgery of manual data extraction and welcome a more efficient way to obtain and manage your YouTube insights.
Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create an Airtable with the information you want to save.
Bardeen will extract information from the YouTube video and save information like video title, your question, your answer and video link.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Airtable.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbooks.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start. Bardeen will ask you for your question and for an Airtable to save the questions and answers. You can choose an existing table or create a new one.
After you enter your question and select your Airtable, Bardeen will ask you to map your fields to Airtable.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Airtable. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.

This playbook saves me at least 1 hour every day. It used to take me a significant amount of time to scrape leads from various platforms manually.
