Kapa provides an integration to pull YouTube videos from any public YouTube channel. Kapa parses the video transcript and ingests a summary, as well as metadata such as the title and description. This way, Kapa can then reference informative tutorials or product demos in its answers.

Step 1: Provide a Channel ID

To obtain the YouTube Channel ID:

  1. Sign into YouTube.
  2. Navigate to Settings.
  3. In the My YouTube Channel section, click on Advanced settings.
  4. Copy the YouTube Channel ID.

Don't worry, if you are not the admin of the YouTube channel you can still obtain the Channel ID:

  1. Head to your YouTube page URL. This is formatted as "".
  2. Hit the button labelled "More" next To Your Channel Description. Pressing this button will open up the "about" section on the channel, showing social links and channel details.
  3. Press the "Share Channel" button and select copy channel ID.

Step 2: Select Playlists

If only certain playlists related to a YouTube channel should be ingested, select those in the dropdown. By default, all videos uploaded by the specific channel are ingested.
