  3. I looked for this for ages!!! Thank god, somehow, I stumbled on your video!! Hahaha

    I am using this to create RSS feeds of mp3 files and open them in a podcast app. I download videos of lectures from youtube, convert them to mp3, upload on google drive and then use the direct link (which only now I know how, thank you again!) to create the feed. So special!

  4. This works great for smaller files, but I was wondering how to do this with larger files. I have done this with short videos and it works great. I just want to know if there is some sort of setting or something I can do so I can use an hour long video. Any help is appreciated.

  6. Omg thank you!!!!!!! I have been trying to do an upload file system for days!!!! This is so much easier. Would I be able to connect to a folder as well?. I was trying to do an upload file system and it wasn't working. Do you know a way I can upload to google srive? Or another htnl file? Of you don't mind, can you lend me some assistance? I am doing my senior capstone and it's killing me!

  7. Thank you very, very much! This is just what I've been looking for.
    You saved me hours of work and further investigation.
