I’m creating a base of videos from youtube.
I have an attachment column in my base and I want to put there video thumbnail.
All thumbnails have the same link but with different ID.
Thumbnail link: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/pAl9SayLzTE/maxresdefault.jpg
https://i.ytimg.com/vi/XXXXXXX/maxresdefault.jpg instead of XXXXXXX
How can I insert the result of this formula in the Attachment field?
Can I somehow receive other info about a video by the link or video ID? (I understand that is another question and big topic, but maybe you have some useful links to read)
So, I found myself formula
REPLACE(“https://i.ytimg.com/vi/x/maxresdefault.jpg”, 24, 1, ID)
But know I can’t find a solution for question №2.
How I can use link from the field Link To Thumbnail and insert in the field Attachement?
