The simple example section shows you how you can use curl on the command line to send a file to a preset set of processing. curl is standard on Mac and Linux, and you can also use it on Windows if you don’t have something else to work with an API with. From the simple example, it should be almost a copy and paste solution to get this working - you just need to put in your own preset id, path to the file to upload, and credentials to make it work for you
If you are on i*OS, then there are a variety of apps (including terminal emulators) that could support this, or you could use numerous coding apps to work with the API, including Apple Shortcuts.
Otter.ai does not seem to currently offer an API, so there are not going to be any web integration services integrated with it without an API. It also means you can’t (officially) integrate with it yourself like you can with Auphonic.
A quick search engine query revealed there are some unofficial API for Otter.ai out there - use at your own risk, etc.
Thank you so much for the detailed response, and my apologies - I realise that I needed to be more clear in my original post so I’ve edit it to reflect that the issue here is not Auphonic/Otter (which I have working in perfect sync via Zapier).
The main issue is that Restream.io doesn’t seem to have an API or way for me to start an automation. I want to get that audio (and possibly video too) into somewhere else e.g. Google Drive that I can monitor with a Zap etc.
If I understand correctly, you are trying to find a way to get audio files that you have created into Auphonic and Otter.ai, but you are having trouble because you are currently using Restream, which does not have Zapier or IFTTT available.
One solution you could consider is using a third-party file transfer service to move your audio files from Restream to Auphonic and Otter.ai. For example, you could use a cloud storage service like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive to upload your audio files from Restream and then connect those storage services to Auphonic and Otter.ai using their respective APIs.
Alternatively, you could use an automation tool like Integromat or Microsoft Power Automate (formerly known as Microsoft Flow) to create a custom workflow that connects Restream to Auphonic and Otter.ai. These tools allow you to create complex automation sequences that can be triggered by various events, such as the creation of a new file in a specific folder or the receipt of an email.
