How does this automation work?

Bardeen automates the process of gathering insights from YouTube videos and organizing them into Google Sheets. This streamlined process is invaluable for content creators, marketers, and researchers who regularly extract information from videos to create summaries, compile data, or generate content ideas. With this playbook, you can pose questions to OpenAI about specific parts of a video transcript and save the responses, making data collection and analysis significantly more efficient.

Here's how this workflow processes YouTube video content and saves it to Google Sheets:

  • Step 1: Scrape YouTube video transcription - Using Scraper, this step extracts the transcription text from a YouTube video that's open on the current active tab.
  • Step 2: Scrape additional data - The scraper is used again to gather any additional data needed from the active tab, further enriching the context for OpenAI.
  • Step 3: Generate answers with OpenAI - OpenAI is utilized to answer your specific questions based on the content scraped from the YouTube video. User input is required to specify the question.
  • Step 4: Get the current page URL - This command retrieves the URL of the YouTube video page, which will be included in the Google Sheets for reference.
  • Step 5: Save to Google Sheets - The results from OpenAI, along with the video URL and other relevant data, are appended to a specified Google Sheets spreadsheet, creating a comprehensive database of insights.
