How does this automation work?

Bardeen's AI-powered automation can help you extract valuable insights from YouTube videos and seamlessly transfer them to a Notion database for easy access and utilization. This workflow is especially useful for researchers, marketers, and anyone who frequently uses YouTube for information gathering and wants to store these insights in a structured manner.

Here are the steps to how this workflow works:

  1. Scrape YouTube Video Transcription: Using the Scraper integration, the transcription of the YouTube video is extracted. The Scraper is a powerful tool that can extract data from almost any website and send it directly to your apps, in this case, the YouTube video transcription.
  2. Scrape Additional Video Data: The scraper is used again to gather any additional data from the active YouTube tab. This could include more detailed transcription data or other relevant information from the video's page.
  3. Generate Questions & Answers with OpenAI: OpenAI, an AI research and deployment company, is used to generate a question and answer based on the scraped data. You'll need to provide the question, and OpenAI will use the video transcription to generate an answer.
  4. Get Current Page URL: This command fetches the URL of the current page, which is the YouTube video in this case. This URL will be used in the next step to create a Notion page.
  5. Create Notion Page: A new page is created in your specified Notion database. The data from the previous steps, including the video transcription, question, answer, and video URL, is used to populate this page. Notion is an all-in-one workspace that blends everyday work apps into one.

This workflow automates the process of extracting and storing valuable information from YouTube videos, saving you time and effort, and enabling you to focus on more strategic tasks.

How to run the workflow

Are you tired of the time-consuming process of transcribing YouTube videos manually? Extracting valuable insights from video content can be a daunting task, especially if you're a researcher, content creator, or someone in need of efficient data gathering.

This automation offers a seamless solution to your pain points. Say goodbye to tedious manual transcription and the frustration of missed details. It effortlessly extracts answers from YouTube videos, making information retrieval a breeze.

But that's not all – the results are automatically stored in a Notion database, ensuring your data is neatly organized and readily accessible. Whether you're conducting research, curating content, or simply seeking to enhance your knowledge base, this automation simplifies the process, saving you time and effort. 

Let’s set it up!

Step 1: Create a Notion database

The first step is to create a Notion database 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.

Step 2: Install the extension and map the data to Notion

You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Notion.

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 a Notion database 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 Notion database, Bardeen will ask you to map your fields to Notion.

The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Notion 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 Notion. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook. 

Step 3: Run the playbook to get answers for a YouTube video and save to Notion

To get an answer from a YouTube video, navigate to the YouTube video that you want to ask a question. 

Press Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard to launch Bardeen. Click on the playbook card and run the playbook to ask your question. It will open the YouTube video’s transcript, get an answer to your question and save it to your Notion database, along with the title and link to the video.

You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
