Videos as podcasts

less than 1 minute read

Today I discovered that you can easily convert YouTube (and a few more) videos to audio files using youtube-dl.

I’m found that these parameters work best for me:

$ youtube-dl -x --audio-format mp3 "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u0sNRO-QKQ"

If you’re an Overcast premium subscriber you can easily upload the extracted files and listen on the go.

I hope you find this useful, too.
