Audio from Google Drive HTTP Post

I’m trying to pass an audio file from google drive into an HTTP post request and am getting an error message that the file doesn’t contain any audio. I imagine that the data from the file is being read as text. Here’s the error message:

Hello there and sorry for the late response, can tell us what is the service you are trying to use? currently our http requests don’t support files, but if it was a piece you should be able to.

Hi,

I’m trying to upload the file into AssemblyAI for transcription
