Testing out using Zapier to upload daily time-lapse videos to Y*utube via Dropbox. Will learn tomorrow if it worked, I guess.

No luck. Doesn’t look like the trigger recognises the file as being new. It has the same name but is a different size.

Back to the drawing board. I have another idea.

Next up is Automator app to rename the mp4 before moving to Dropbox to be uploaded. And a second one to remove it from Dropbox and archive it. Rinse repeat. And wait.

Actually. Worked completely. What I thought was an error was just a leftover test file. Let’s see how it goes moving forward.
