Let’s set it up!

Step 1: Create an Airtable

The first step is to create an Airtable with all the information you want to save. 

Bardeen will extract from the currently opened YouTube history page information like title, author, author link, preview image, video link, description and views.

Step 2: Install the extension and integrate Airtable and YouTube data scraper

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 a Windows machine on your keyboard) and click to run the playbook to get the data.

Click on the playbook card, and the setup flow will start. Bardeen will ask you to specify an Airtable.

After you choose the database, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.

The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields 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!

Bardeen will also ask you to choose to get data from how many videos. 

Click on “Save Input” and checkmark  Airtable. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook. 

Step 3: Save / scrape Youtube history page to Airtable

Whenever you want to get data from the YouTube history page, navigate to the YouTube history page, activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on a Windows machine on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will get data from the currently opened page and save everything to Airtable.
