Podcast Video hops on with its latest update on podcast trends – Meczyki.Net

Since video-led podcasts are highly preferred by listeners, podcastalOffering what was primarily an audio recording and editing studio a new feature Which enables podcasters to perform high-resolution video interviews or solo recordings.

Now, Podcastle will allow users to invite up to ten guests and record video via the Chrome browser or the Podcasts mobile app on iOS devices. Since it’s all remote, podcast producers can interview each guest with separate audio and video tracks, also known as multi-track recordings. A poor Internet connection shouldn’t be a problem either, as the podcast records all interview participants locally, and the files are automatically saved to a cloud database.

In the coming weeks, Podcastle says it will launch screen sharing and video rendering, which allow users to interview participants in a single scene and download videos without leaving the browser. There will also be the ability to add a unique branding to the background.

To use the service, podcast users click the “+” on the app or “Create New Interview” on desktop. Then they select the type of interview – either video or audio. However, each option has a camera feature. Creators then schedule interviews and engage guests via their email address or by sharing a meeting link. To start recording, Podcast Producer click “Start Interview” and tap the Record button. When the interview is over, the file is automatically saved.

After recording what looks like a Google Meet or Zoom call, users can add interviews to their projects and start working on audio, isolate tracks, add royalty-free music or special effects, awkward pauses Can delete, and much more. The editing step can only be done on desktop – the app is for recording purposes only.

Podcasts initially started out as a Chrome extension that converts any online article into a podcast. Today, it is available on browsers and iOS devices and offers a full suite of tools and features such as an audio editor, text-to-speech converter, automatic background noise, and silence remover, transcriber, and AI-powered features. Podcaster – Beginners and Professionals – with easy to use features like magic dustWhich isolates voices and removes background noise.

Upon testing the software, we found that the audio is uncompressed, which means it’s about as true to the original sound as you can get. The audio sample is 48kHz WAV (Waveform Audio File Format), which is the common standard. We didn’t use fancy microphones or studio equipment, so while the audio wasn’t “My Favorite Murder” quality, it was good.

Video quality on the iPhone is good, but we wouldn’t consider it studio quality. Recent iPhone and iPad models can record in 4K, so at least you won’t be uploading a video that looks like you took it in the early 00s. However, in order to record in 4K, Podcastle requires users to pay for a subscription plan.

Podcastle has a basic free tier, yet it only gives users three hours per month of audio recording (160kbps MP3 audio download quality) and only 720p video download quality. Furthermore, it only allows the user to use the Magic Dust AI-powered sound enhancement, 1-click silence removal, and auto-leveling features, for a total of three times each month.

To upgrade, users will need to pay $15/month for their Storyteller plan, which offers eight hours of video recording (up to 4K quality) and unlimited audio plus 320kbps MP3 or 1411kbps WAV audio download quality – which is free 160kbps exceeds the quality. Podcastle Pro is $30/month and offers unlimited audio and 20 hours of video recording.

It has the same pricing structure as its rival Riverside, except its standard tier, it costs $19/month while Riverside Pro costs $29/month. Both paid plans include the ability to live stream to Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook. Also, Riverside has a free plan, but it has very limited features.

Meanwhile, another competitor in podcasting software, Anchor by Spotify, only allows you to record audio. Because of this the service is free monetization philosophy, Allows everyone access to its features which include an editing tool that is much less extensive than podcasts as it only allows for trimming and splitting audio. But as Spotify moves into video podcasts, it partnered with riverside To give creators the option to create a separate Riverside account and record video episodes. With the update to Podcastle, you can record both audio and video on the same platform.

“With major video platforms like YouTube dedicating entire departments to the podcasting market, the industry is experiencing a massive expansion,” said Artvazd Yeritsyan, founder and CEO of Podcastle. “We are very excited to deliver studio-quality video recording to our users, many of whom are eagerly awaiting this launch,” said Yeritsian.

Podcastle has raised a total of $8.8 million in funding to date and primarily generates its revenue from subscription plans.
