Hello, Airtable community.
I have a Google Drive synced Airtable base and all Zoom call recordings are stored there.
I need to use an app to show the Zoom recordings by clicking on the drive link.
Is that possible anyway? Any app for that?
All apps I tried, are looking for the attachment field.
Thanks in advance.
Dave

I couldn’t get this to work with Airtable’s URL Preview app, but you might be able to do this with On2Air: Amplify. @Hannah_Wiginton would know for sure:

Hey @Dave_Banerjee

This is possible with the On2Air Amplify dashboard app

Here’s a Zoom recording URL stored in Google Drive. You can play the video from the base. It uses the Record Previewer block in the Amplify app.

I've encountered a similar situation before, and it can be a bit tricky when Google Drive doesn't show video previews, especially for Zoom call recordings. However, there's a way to work around this.

You can try using an app like the one mentioned in this link:https://www.movavi.com/learning-portal/free-video-editing-software-for-mac.html. It might help you view your Zoom recordings by clicking on the Drive link. Sometimes, these video editing apps can open the files even if they're not previewing correctly in Drive.
