Creating Audiograms With Our Headliner Integration
If you are subscribed to our Growth or Pro plans you automatically have access to the industry-leading Audiogram tool, Headliner.
In order to make an audiogram from your podcast episodes, you first need to navigate to your Castos dashboard and the episode list for the podcast you're working on.
From there click the Link icon to the right of the episode you want to create an audiogram for.
There in the resulting modal window, you'll see a button to launch Headliner and create your audiogram.
NOTE: The first time you click on the button to launch the Headliner functionality, you may be asked to allow popups from app.castos.com. This is to allow us to trigger a new Headliner window, which allows you to create your audiogram.
Once the new Headliner window is open, you will choose the shape of video you want to create. The shape here depends on where you want to post it. The most common is Square.
Next you will be prompted to update or upload the cover image you want to use for this episode. By default the Episode Cover Image from your Castos account is used, but you may opt to upload an Episode-Specific image or the cover image for your podcast as a whole.
Next you can customize how the waveform appears on your video. This includes the color of the waveform, it's shape, and location:
As a reminder, Audiograms are typically meant as a teaser for the rest of your podcast, so their duration should be a few seconds to a few minutes in length. They are not typically meant to be full-length representations of your podcast. During the next step select the portion of your episode you want to create your audiogram from. This is done by moving the light blue window bar horizontally along the timeline of your episode. You can extend or shorten the duration of this window by clicking and dragging the left or right borders of it.
If you would like to have Captioning on your audiogram make that selection in the "Audio Transcription" toggle below.
Headliner is now uploading your audio file so you can do any last minute adjustments to the audiogram before it is finalized and exported to be published.
Headliner will take a few moments to publish the video you've just created, and a link to that video will be available in that same window in your Castos dashboard.
