How to Record a Remote Video Podcast

How are video and audio-only podcasts different? The latter has a video element in it, such as a background image, gif, boomerang, or a proper video that captures the host and their guest(s) sitting in a studio or having a remote conversation through recording software. Depending on the type of video podcast, it can be complicated or hassle-free to make. But one is clear: the production of a video show often includes additional equipment and might cost a bit more than an audio-only show.

How to Record a Remote Video Podcast

Depending on the video element in the podcast and the way it’s made, there are four types video podcasts can be divided into:

  • Static image video podcast implies you only add a background image with a voice-over overlaying it.
  • In-studio video podcast recording means that you capture yourself in a studio along with your co-hosts and guests (or without them).
  • Remote video podcast means that you record yourself and your guests when you’re in different places, even miles away from each other, using video conferencing software or special solutions for remote podcasting, such as Waveroom. We’ll focus on this method in this guide.
  • B-roll recording is partly similar to the first type we’ve covered above but instead of one image that loops or remains static, a b-roll podcast has plenty of visual elements in it that complement a voice-over referencing them.

How to record a remote video podcast with Waveroom

Waveroom is an online podcast recording studio that captures video shows with ease. Follow these steps to capture a video podcast:

  1. Log in to your Waveroom account.
  2. If you previously recorded with Waveroom, click + at the top left corner to create a new recording room. If you’re a new user, skip this step.
  3. Select your camera, microphone, and headphones in the Devices tab under the video preview.
  4. Select the video recording mode in the Record tab. By default, the Highest Device Capability mode is on. When it’s enabled, video is captured in the highest quality your device is capable of.

    If you want to record in a specific video resolution, enable the Limited Quality Mode. Click the arrow button next to the Highest Device Capability mode, then click the dot next to the Limited Quality mode and select the quality and resolution in the drop-down list.

    Note: The video recording modes apply to all participants. Learn more about the modes here. Audio is always recorded in the highest possible quality.
  5. (Optional) Enable additional features in the AI tab. Toggle on Remove Noise to cancel out extraneous sounds, Transcribe Speech to convert speech to text, and/or Create Summary to summarize what’s been said during the recording.

    💡Tip: You can test the recording quality and correct connection of the selected devices by clicking the Start Test Record button. If you want to rename the room, click the name and select the Rename Room button.
  6. Copy the invite link. You can either copy it directly from your browser’s address bar or click the room name and select the Copy Meeting Link option in the drop-down menu.
  7. Send the link to people you want to join your recording.
  8. Click the Start Meeting button to open your recording room.
  9. Click the Record button when you’re ready to begin the session.
  10. When you’re done, click the Stop button to end the meeting.

Wait a few seconds until the recording is saved. Once you see the Upload Completed notification at the bottom right corner, click the X sign to leave the meeting.

After that, you will see a list of video and audio recordings of each of the podcast’s participants. In the room, you can play and download the recordings.

Here you can also apply AI features if you skipped this step before recording. At the bottom of the page, click Denoise to remove background noise from the audio, click Transcription to transcribe the audio to text, and/or click Summary to create an overview of the key points of your podcast.
