Google Drive/YouTube - Media type 'text/html; charset=utf-8' is not supported.



I am currently attempting to upload a video from Google Drive to YouTube, but I'm encountering an issue stating, "Media type 'text/html; charset=utf-8' is not supported." The video file has the .mp4 extension, which is a format supported by YouTube. Interestingly, when I used a direct video link hosted on a website, the upload was successful. However, attempting the same process with the Google Drive link results in an error.

I also tried adding the additional step (following the below video) of making the video "Share a File With Anyone" but still same issue. I tried with small videos but results are the same.

YouTube no longer allows us to upload files directly through Google Drive URLs because they don't have the correct extension. You can try using CloudConvert to get the URL with the correct extension and then use this URL to make an upload to YouTube.
