What to consider when choosing video podcast software

With the right recording software you don’t need to be in a fancy studio to record a professional video podcast. You can record everything from home, the office, or on the go. Find software with high-definition local recording that captures everything directly on your and your guests’ devices. In this way, you can record remotely without compromising resolution if your internet connection gets a little faulty. It’s worth checking how many guests can join your recording and we recommend also looking out for producer or host modes to help you run your video podcast smoothly. If you want all-one-one recording and editing software, consider the type of editing features that come with your video podcast platform.

Look for easy-to-use editing tools that polish your podcast and help you create shareable content or clips. If you’d like to take your editing even further with specialized editing software, look for a video podcast recorder with separate audio and video tracks. This will give you more flexibility and control in post-production. To completely streamline your video podcast production, a bonus to look out for is quick distribution directly from your software. Check for distribution integration with platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Youtube, and more. Extra features you might want to consider include live streaming, cloud storage, and live effects.
