Get notified when new Youtube Video from different creators is uploaded

I am pretty new to n8n but I have been learning a lot. I found a couple of other posts trying to do the same thing I am trying to do.

YouTube: Subscribe to Push Notifications &
Auto-update a Webhook Subscription (PubSubHubbub + YouTube)

I copied the workflow from the 2nd link and edited the links and channel ID to the stuff I want to watch. I went to pubsubhubbub and it said it was verified, but it isn’t returning any data. When I look at the 2nd webhook (webhook_subscribe) and Verifiy Webhook, I don’t see any data there either.

Here is the output from pubsubhubbub.

So I am not sure how I am supposed to get the data from pubsubhubbub into my workflow and use it going farther. From what I can see, it isn’t sending any content. I am hoping that someone else might have more experience with this workflow and can help me get mine to work.

Hey @jlhsolutions,

That is not a workflow I am familiar with but looking at the post you need to set up pubsubhubbub to post to a webhook, have you done this?

Hi Jon,

I have never used pubsubhubbub before. I found the posts I mentioned above in a serach but I am not able to make it work. The code that was provided showed a webhook for it to send data to but I can’t seem to make it work. I copied it and used that but it still didn’t work for me.
