BoxUpload File

YouTube makes it easy for you to share video content; it's not meant for storage and file management. Save yourself the trouble of uploading your videos multiple times by setting up this YouTube-Box integration. From then on, every new video uploaded to YouTube will trigger this Zap, storing the video on any Box folder you need automatically.

Note: this Zap is set up to watch for new uploads by YouTube usernames, and so can be used to store videos from the users you follow as well.

How It Works

  1. A new video is uploaded on YouTube
  2. Zapier automatically adds it to a folder on Box
