405- Converting videos to audio podcasts

In this audio episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss a article that expressed the possibility of converting video “chats” into podcast audio episodes. As a matter of fact, anchor now has announced a tool that can turn your video “chat” into an audio podcast episode mp3.

From the article mentioned, the steps to perform to accomplish this conversion is given.

However, the file formats that are not supported in this tool are the YouTube links that are from a video “chat.”

Now, for this podcast reporter, I agree with Daniel J Lewis of the Audacity to Podcast show that converting from video to audio (or vice-versa) with a tool may not be a generally good idea, because each medium has its features specific to that original medium.

As you will hear in this audio episode, my experience was not good in trying to make such a conversion with a prior client when I was a podcast consultant. And so I would agree with the “purist” train of thought to keep each medium emphasizing its great features within such medium and not to convert to another (which may backfire).

I hope that your medium features will highlight your podcast in the best way to make your show a success and to extend its reach to more audiences.

Thank you for your attention.
