Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create a Coda table 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 Coda table that you specified once the setup is complete.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Coda.

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 Coda table that you created in Step #1. After you choose the database, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Coda.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Coda 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 Coda. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
