YouTube & Dropbox uploaders not working

Hi everyone!

Currently I'm running a set-up with a Raspberry Pi 4 with Raspberry camera and I have the YouTube and Dropbox uploader plugins installed (as well as Octolapse). For both of them I followed the necessary steps to connect them to my Dropbox and YouTube accounts, but both fail to perform their task. I have barely any experience with Raspberry and Python so I have no idea how to fix them. I feel like both of them are caused by the same problem, but I'm not sure what the problem is exactly. Any suggestions? So far the only thing that I can think of might be the issue is that I'm using the printer on the university network. They've approved the use of the Raspberry Pi and have allowed access to the network and I can access the Raspberry Pi, view the camera footage and everything, but maybe uploading the video footage might be prevented?

Like I said, I have barely any experience with Raspberry Pi and Python so please consider this in any answer/suggestion you might have :slight_smile:

Thank you so much in advance and have a great day!

Can you upload the systeminfo bundle?

Yes of course! I didn't know how to get those details, but your link helped! I copied the part after the print is finished. Reading this myself, I see that something went wrong in setting up both the Dropbox connection and the YouTube connection. I'll be looking into each of them myself too. I did follow the dedicated pages that showed a step-by-step process of how to set them up, but I guess I still did something wrong

In the Dropbox App Console I just turned on files.content.write in permissions. I think that must be what has been preventing Octoprint to upload the videos. Please let me know if I'm mistaking. I'll look into YouTube next

Reading the error posted for dropbox, that seems like a sensible option.

I got both of them working! In Dropbox it was indeed the option that I mentioned in my previous comment and for YouTube I just did everything again with a different gmail account and that solved it. The only problem I have now is that YouTube automatically locks my videos in private. They seem to think it violates their policy and I can't make an appeal. Anyone that has got experience with this?
