How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation simplifies the process of curating content from YouTube to Airtable, providing a streamlined method to keep track of videos for research, marketing strategies, or content sourcing. The playbook captures essential video details from a YouTube channel and seamlessly transfers them into an Airtable base, avoiding manual data entry and saving valuable time. Here's how you can efficiently save YouTube video information to Airtable.

Here is how this workflow operates:

  • Step 1: Scrape YouTube channel page - First, Bardeen extracts a list of videos from the active YouTube channel tab using a pre-configured scraper. Specify the maximum number of videos to scrape according to your needs.
  • Step 2: Save to Airtable - The scraped video details, including titles, links, views, and thumbnails, are then added to an Airtable table. Ensure you have the Airtable base ready to receive the data.

How to run the workflow

Looking to escape the labyrinth of manual data entry for your YouTube video catalog in Airtable? Tired of the headache that comes with copying titles, links, views, and preview images? The struggle is real, but the solution is simpler than you think. 

This automation effortlessly extracts video details from the open YouTube channel page straight into your Airtable workspace. Say farewell to the time-consuming chore of maintaining your video database. 

Whether you're a content curator seeking a streamlined workflow or a data-driven marketer aiming for efficiency, this automation transforms your process. 

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 channel page and get profile information like video title, duration, days since posted, video link and more. It will then save this information to your Airtable, once your setup is complete.

Step 2: Install the extension and map the data to Airtable

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 an Airtable to save the video information. Choose 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: Run the playbook to save videos from a YouTube channel page to Airtable

To save a list of YouTube videos from the currently opened YouTube channel page, navigate to the channel 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 and save it to your Airtable with one click.

This automation is fantastic for effortlessly populating an Airtable with details from your favorite YouTube channels. Content curators can streamline the process of cataloging videos, saving time, and ensuring a neatly organized collection for future reference or sharing.

For marketing strategists and analysts, this playbook becomes a powerful tool. Extracting video data directly into an Airtable allows for real-time tracking of trends, views, and engagement metrics. Stay ahead of the curve by making data-driven decisions without the hassle of manual data entry.

Teachers and educators can also use this automation to build a resource database. Extracting video titles, links, and relevant details into Airtable helps create an organized repository for educational content. It simplifies the process of managing and sharing valuable resources with students or colleagues.

You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
