OpenAI Whisper expecting UploadFile received <class 'str'>

Hello,

The form suggested by the OpenAI integration for Whisper is casting file as a string while OpenAI API is expected an UploadFile object.

Is there a recommended way to use this integration with existing audio files or ones recorded via the microphone component?

Best regards,

Hi @antoine.meilliez

Thanks for reaching out!

Hmm, I see what you mean :thinking: We've seen similar issues with other APIs, which we've solved through Justin's workaround here. I don't quite have it working for OpenAI yet, but I'll do some more testing & follow up

Hi there! I wanted to check in to let you know I've attached a bug internally for this :disappointed:

For simply transcribing audio, I did find the Whisper API (https://transcribe.whisperapi.com), which appears to accept uploaded files or file urls. If using this is an option to you, I might try uploading the base64 to something like s3 -> getting a signed url -> and then sending that url to this API

I am facing some similar issue:


but with the OpenAI Files API

Using the Workflow, I load some data from Retool PG database, and create a string. But it is failing right now because it is expecting a file as the value of the file input.

Hi @Tess
Is there an ETA on the bug fix?

Hi @bce9722, unfortunately I don't have an eta for this one :disappointed: Would you be able to use a Rest API resource type instead of the Open AI integration? There's a similar REST API solution here!

is there a solution already?

Hi @Christopher_Menzel does the REST solution described here work for you?

I don't have an eta for the bug fix yet, but it's still in our queue!
