After launching in limited trials last year, Spotify is finally letting creators in more countries upload video podcasts. Creators can upload their video episodes through Anchor's free web platform or even replace audio episodes with video versions, according to the music streaming company.


TL;DR

  • Spotify launches video podcasting to all creators in select countries.
  • Video podcasts are uploaded through Anchor's web platform.
  • Spotify integrates free video recording and editing on Riverside.

Specifically, Spotify's video podcasting is now available to the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. And along with the rollout, Spotify has added new features that podcasters could utilize. Podcast subscriptions for video podcasts are available, and Spotify says they are working to include more monetization features.

Similar to audio podcasts, creators will have access to video analytics of their episodes. Podcasters can tap on the different insights and metrics such as number of streams, unique followers, demographics, and more. In addition, creators can add interactive polls or Q&A sections in each video. The video episodes are also embeddable and will support direct playing through the embed player.

Spotify is also partnering with Riverside for recording and editing video podcasts with up to 4K video resolution and uncompressed 48kHz WAV audio format. Automatically, video and audio tracks are separated for each participant.

In terms of other features, viewers will have an option to turn on video backgrounds. This keeps the audio playing in the background while video will be replaced by a static image — a neat feature if you just want to listen to a podcast. The company is already working to release video podcasting to more markets.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
