First, I’d want to make sure @RonGilbert didn’t have any objections to that. This would mean in essence redistributing his podcast. For this experience, I kept the file in the “Unlisted” state so it wouldn’t be findable via a search engine, but a direct link like I put in that previous post works.
In addition, I’d want to think of a way to streamline that process. There were several manual steps to the process the first time, including a bunch of hassling around in the program I used to encode the jpeg image file and mp3 podcast file into an mp4 video. The video conversion took around an hour I think, and the upload to youtube and their initial processing took quite a while as well.
I’m sure I could find ways to script and streamline the process.
Another option is to just upload them, and pull out the transcript data. Note, this method doesn’t identify the speakers, so we would probably ultimately want to edit those transcripts and clean them up.
I guess we have to ask ourselves if there is value in the video format, where you can see the transcript while the audio is playing., or if we really just want a the text.
