Riverside adds video “Clips” feature, shortcutting 3rd-party tools


Video/audio podcast production platform Riverside has announced a video-clip-building feature. It’s a clever move for a podcast creation platform which is already distinguished by its fluency in video.

“With Clips, you can repurpose your long-form content into 100s of highlights,” the company says in its promotional language.

Video-clipping audio shows enlarges a podcast’s promotional effort by producing a more attractive and sticky social media presence. With its video underpinning, Riverside is perfectly positioned to shortcut third-party services like Headliner, which specializes in creating audio-to-video clips for traditional audio podcast platforms. (Headliner has accomplished several integration with those companies, such as Megaphone, Libsyn, SiriusXM (pre-podcast acquisitions), Acast, (pre-Audacy) Entercom, and others.
