Day 9 – 31 Day Podcast Challenge
There’s no great way to share and embed a podcast on Facebook anymore.
And what a great way to share your episode, or at least a portion of your podcast episode that is visually pleasing with audio waves moving and/or transcribed text.
For Day 9 of my 31 Day Podcast Challenge, I have a list of apps that will convert your audio podcasts into motion graphic videos known as “audiograms” that you can share on YouTube and Facebook.
Audioburst offers a set of free tools for podcasters to promote their episodes through social media and SEO — and included in those tools are an audiogram creator. Audioburst listens for your new episodes and imports them onto their system, then they breaks down your podcast into shortform “audiobursts” to capture the best parts of your show. You can then publish those bursts to you social media or embed them on your website. Audioburst also transcribes your entire episode for free.
The maximum length you can make a video audiogram is 5 minutes, however they are working on making that longer and also integrating their transcriptions into the audiograms.
WoFox offers a full suite of motion graphic applications — from infographic and gif makers to video and animation editors. WoFox’s Free Plan includes all their templates and assets, unlimited designs/motions/photos, 360px resolution video, and videos up to 30 seconds. Their free license is limited to personal videos only. They also have a business plan and a team plan if you are looking to go big.
Auphonic offers a diverse set of post production services for podcasts including audio leveling, loudness normalization, audio restoration, cross talk removal, speech recognition and transcription, audio file encoding, content deployment, and audiogram video generation.
A big perk of Auphonic, unlike some of the others on this list, is that it can create an audiogram for your ENTIRE podcast. Short audiograms (not longer than 5 minutes) will be encoded as Full HD / 1080p videos, and long audiograms (longer than 5 minutes) as HD / 720p videos.
You can upload multiple Chapter Images so that the background image changes throughout the full length podcast. Auphonic’s free plan offers up to 2 hours of monthly processed audio, and includes all of their features. They have paid plans, and pay as you go as well.
Their Free plan allows up to 10 videos without watermarks per month — which is an incredible value for free. You can actually create more than 10 videos per month on the Free Plan if you’d like, but the additional videos would include watermarks.
The Pro Plan is $12.95/month and includes unlimited videos without watermarks, custom watermarks, free stock videos and images (including some Getty), ability to create reusable templates, custom intro/outro videos, ability to import your own fonts, and priority support.
Wavve with two V’s offers a similar service as Headerliner App. Their Free plan only includes 1 minute of video per month and has their Wavve branding in the video. Wavve’s premium plans range between $10-$32 per month
Audiogram is another option for creating visual videos with transcription. A big drawback is that your video lengths are limited to 2 mins 20 seconds. Their Free Plan allows for up to 2 videos per month with transcribed captions, and the videos have Audiogram watermarks on them and aren’t HD versions of the videos.
Transcribed captions are limited to 60 seconds on a free plan. They have a pro plan and an elite program that gets you more transcribed captions and removal of the watermark.
Repurpose is an automation tool for podcasters that distributes their episodes across multiple platforms — and included in that is a built-in audiogram creator for converting the episodes into videos. You can set different rules for each platform so that, for example, Instagram gets square videos and YouTube gets 16:9 videos.
Repurpose does not offer a free plan, however, they do have a free trial to kick the tires. A big perk of Repurpose is that for a similar amount of money per month as some of the other services I have listed, you also get the benefit of their automated distribution in addition to just the audiogram service. Plus you can audiogram entire episodes unlike many of the other options which limit you to short segments.
Recorded in Studio C at Channel 511, in the Brewery District, downtown Columbus, OH.
