I’ve been playing around with a few different Shortcuts to upload the audio of a YouTube video directly to Overcast. This could be useful for TED Talks, lectures, or anything else you like!
The shortcut does the following:
- Accepts a YouTube video URL
- Downloads the video and extracts the audio
- Saves the audio to Files
- Opens Overcast.fm for you to upload the file
- Deletes the file from Files upon your return
It’s not a completely hands-off process, but it works relatively well.
You can download the Shortcut here:
As I said in another thread, I can’t take full credit for this as it’s an amalgamation of a few different Shortcuts. Unfortunately I didn’t make a note of the creators of those Shortcuts when I downloaded them, so apologies to the actual creators!
