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!
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.
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.
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.
