Webflow Zapier Integration with videos

Hiya everyione

I created a zap to upload videos to my site, upon someone submitting a form with a youtube link however, when I use the zap the video does not load on my published site. However, when I manually upload a CMS item it does work.

The reason the video doesn’t load on your site is because it’s missing the embed code for the video. Webflow only generates the embed code when you add a video link in the CMS.

Unfortunately, zapier doesn’t do it for you.

One solution would be to submit the form to Airtable, and then use PowerImporter to sync Airtable to Webflow. PowerImporter will generate the embed codes for your video links and automatically publish them to your site.
