Grabbing the media from the video is easy. I use keepvid.com
Load your youtube video, right click and select copy video url
Go to the keepvid site and paste that in the box. It will search for and
grab the video. From there you can save it to your hard drive in a variety
of formats, the last one listed is for MP3. Click that and follow the steps.
If the video is a talking head shot then the audio should work fine as an
extra episode in your show. If however you are showing people something
that requires them to actually "see" what you are talking about, your
audio-only listeners will not be able to see it and will feel left out. So
the content of your video is crucial when it comes to using the audio from
Have you promoted your videos on your show and on your website by embedding
the video? If the traffic is not to your satisfaction on the videos, first
drive traffic TO the videos... as more people watch it and click like,
other people will be more inclined to watch it because it has x number of
views. They will in turn seek out your podcast.
When I listen to a show I like I search for other things they are doing,
such as videos because YouTube is the #2 search engine in the world. If it
were me, I would be more concerned with driving traffic to the videos to
build a wider audience there than using the audio from the video to make
extra audio content. Some people may not know you have videos and won't
even think of looking. You could use a "clip" of audio from the video on a
show and then tell people they can watch and hear the entire thing for free
on your youtube channel by clicking www._______.com/youtube where the
"youtube" part is a redirect page to your youtube channel.
