How to share your music or podcast audio to youtube

Learn how to easily convert your audio to video and get audio to youtube

If you are trying to get your audio to Youtube, I have some good & bad news. 

The Bad

Youtube doesn’t support audio uploads.

Ok, now that we have that out of the way…

The Good

Youtube supports almost all video file types. This means all you need to do is convert your audio to a video file and then you can upload it directly to Youtube.

There are many different ways to accomplish this, including simply throwing your mp3 file into iMovie with an image and creating a static video file. However, viewers on Youtube may not be aware audio is included since there would not be any motion (it would just look like a still image) and most videos play automatically on mute.

Here at Wavve, we found that adding an audio waveform animation to videos featuring an image & audio is the best way to grab the attention of Youtube viewers. With Wavve, you can upload your own image and choose from a wide variety of animation styles to create beautiful videos that feature your audio. Check out a sample on our Youtube channel:
