Let’s set it up!

Step 1: Create an Airtable

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

Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened YouTube video and save information like video title, video description, channel name, channel link, subscribers, number of views, number of comments, and number of likes. It will then save all this information to your Airtable that you specified once the setup is complete.

Step 2: Install the extension and run the playbook

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 PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start. 

You will be asked to specify the Airtable that you created in Step #1. 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 in Airtable 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 Airtable. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook. 

Step 3: Start saving!

When you want to save information from a YouTube video to Airtable, navigate to the YouTube video page.

Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will get all the information from the YouTube video and save it to the Airtable that you specified. 

This automation is fantastic if you are a content creator or a digital marketer. You can utilize this automation to analyze video performance and gather valuable insights. By extracting video details such as views, likes, and comments, you can assess engagement levels, identify trends, and make data-driven decisions to optimize your content strategy.
