YouTube is a great destination for video, but has increasingly become a popular place to tune into podcasts, too. Acast makes it easy to share your podcast episodes directly to your YouTube channel, helping to expand your audience.
Before uploading any episodes to YouTube, first verify your YouTube account—this is essential.
Turning on your YouTube Integration
For podcasters on the Influencer or Ace plans, go to your show and you'll see an Distribution tab:
From here, click on Activate to enable the YouTube integration. This will open a modal containing YouTube's Terms and Conditions. Give it a read, and click OK to agree:
You will then be prompted to log into YouTube with your Google ID, connecting your Acast account to enable you to post videos to your YouTube channel.
Once all signed in, you'll be able to configure your standard YouTube settings, such as whether the video is public, private, or unlisted.
And voila! Any new episodes you publish moving forward will be automatically integrated with YouTube. Historical episodes published before you turned on the integration will need to be integrated manually.
A reminder: Before uploading any episodes to YouTube, first verify your YouTube account—this is essential.
Note: it can take a little while to generate the YouTube videos, occasionally as long as an hour. You will receive an email once your episode is fully uploaded onto YouTube.
