YouTube is a great destination for video, but has increasingly become a popular place to tune into podcasts, too. Acast Open makes it easy to share your podcast episodes directly to your YouTube account, 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 Integrations tab, this is where the YouTube magic happens.

From here, toggle on the YouTube switch. This will automatically pop open a modal for YouTube's Terms and Conditions. Give it a read, and click OK to agree:

Once you've agreed to YouTube's Terms and Conditions, and you'll be prompted to log into YouTube with your Google ID, giving Acast Open permission to post to YouTube.

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 viola! 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.

Note: it can take a little while to generate the YouTube videos, occasionally as long as an hour.

How to publish older episodes to YouTube

  1. Enable YouTube in your account (as above)
  2. Choose the episode you want to share to YouTube
  3. In the Share panel on the left, you'll see a YouTube button. Click that to trigger the YouTube uploader.
