How can I automate posting embedded YouTube videos as announcements?

Jump to solution

I've been recording short daily videos that I want to post as announcements in all of my classes.

I don't want to have to go into each class, post a new announcement, and embed the video manually every day. It only takes a couple of minutes for each class, but I want to save that time.

I tried using the external RSS feed generated by my YouTube channel, but it didn't recognize a new video was posted and send it out as an announcement.

Update: It works now. External RSS just takes a bit of time. It just takes a while and posts it as a link instead of as an embed, but this works 🙂 If anyone has suggestions on how to automate improving the formatting when the video is posted, please let me know.
