Hi there,

May I know how can I import YT video via your "Link URL" IMPORT option?

I tried to do so but It said video doesn’t exist

Hi Mohamed,
The URL import is only for actual video URLs (i.e. https://mysite.com/myvideo.mp4

YouTube doesn’t offer these types of urls to the direct video. All of their video content is secured behind a firewall. And the URLS they give are URLs to web pages not the videos themselves.

Do, unfortunately, they don’t allow you to upload a video this way.

If it is your video, you can login to your YouTube account and download the video and then upload it to ClipScribe.

Thanks!

Craig
