How does this automation work?

Maximize knowledge retention and streamline your research by leveraging Bardeen's automation to summarize Youtube videos. This workflow utilizes OpenAI's capabilities to extract essential points from Youtube content and translates them into your preferred language. It then neatly organizes this information in Google Sheets, making it perfect for content creators, educators, and anyone looking to capture insights without manual effort.

Here's how this workflow processes a Youtube video and saves the insights into Google Sheets:

  • Step 1: Extract Video ID - Bardeen uses a regular expression to find the unique identifier of the currently opened Youtube video from the URL.
  • Step 2: Get Video Transcript Link - With the video ID, Bardeen constructs the URL for the Youtube transcript service to access the video's transcript.
  • Step 3: Scrape Transcript - The transcript URL is used to scrape the full text of the Youtube video using a dedicated Bardeen scraper template.
  • Step 4: Summarize Content with OpenAI - The scraped transcript is then summarized by OpenAI, highlighting the key takeaways and learnings from the video.
  • Step 5: Translate Summary - DeepL integration translates the summarized content into your chosen language, maintaining the core messages.
  • Step 6: Save to Google Sheets - The final translated summary is added to a Google Sheets spreadsheet, creating an organized repository of information for easy access and reference.
