POST: Creating Videos

Video continues to grow in popularity and encourages listener engagement.  Use your creative nature to easily and quickly make shareable visual content using POST Basic or Advanced Video.  Follow the steps below to transform your audio content into a customized, ready-to-share video.  

NOTE: Episodes must conform to the following limits to be eligible for video creation:
Basic Video: 30 minutes or less
Advanced Video:  10 minutes or less

Option 1: Create a Basic Video During Episode Publishing

Begin by creating an audio episode.  For more information on creating episodes, click here.

In the final publishing stage, you can choose to publish to YouTube and any other publishing destinations of your choice.  

When YouTube is selected, a Basic Video will begin to build.  Depending on the length and the number of videos in the queue, it may take several minutes to process. When finished, it will automatically be posted to your YouTube channel.

Option 2: Create a Basic or Advanced Video from a Previously Published Episode

 On the Video tab, you can view all previously published episodes that are under 30 minutes and eligible for video creation.

Use the drop-down menu to filter by Show or search by episode title.

Click the "Create as video" button by your episode of choice.  If the video is under 10 minutes, you will have the option to select Advanced or Basic Video.  Otherwise, only the Basic Video option will be presented.

When selecting Basic, the video will begin generating, and you will be taken back to your show episode list, where you can download it as it finishes.

If you select Advanced Video, the Headliner editing interface will open, where you can create your custom video. 

Video Status/Downloading

To check your video's status or to access your completed videos, navigate to the Shows tab and click on the appropriate show.  Look for the video camera icon next to the episode in your list.  Light green means the video is still being created, while dark green means it is ready to download.

Once the video is ready, click on the video camera and then the purple button to download the file.

Congratulations!  You now have a shareable video that can be easily posted to any social media site or your station website.
