Turn YouTube Searches Into Video Podcasts

Aug 19th, 2008 | By | Category: Podcasting Software, Video, Video Podcasts

YouTube Podcaster is a free service that lets you take YouTube searches and turn them into video podcasts, which you can subscribe to with iTunes or other podcast client and view on your portable media player.

The site is a bit kludgy, so here’s a quick guide to how to turn YouTube searches into video podcasts:

  1. Go to YouTube and search for something. I searched for Chemical Brothers.
  2. Copy the YouTube URL. It should looks something like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=chemical+brothers

  3. Go to the YouTube Podcaster tool and paste your search URL into the form field and click the “Make a feed” button.

You’ll end up with links to add your custom podcast URLs to iTunes and other RSS readers. Depending on your computer’s configuration, you may be able to just click these URLs to subscribe to the podcast, or you may have to manualy copy the URL and add it to your podcast software.

I tested this out with an iPhone, and videos showed up just like any other video podcast:
