huffduff-video, my latest side project, lets you send Huffduffer the audio from videos on YouTube, Vimeo, and more. Just grab the bookmarklet, click it next time you find a video that you want to listen to, and it should show up in your podcast app automatically!

It’s pretty bare bones, but it does the trick. Thanks to youtube-dl for all the heavy lifting, Jeremy Keith for building the wonderful Huffduffer, Bret Comnes for the inspiration, and interviewers and speakers everywhere for providing so many great videos to huffduff!

  1. Hi! Who is paying for the storage? Is there a way to donate. Because I really really like this. Its what I was looking for for a long time.

  2. Also, would it be possible to always add the video link to the description?

  3. @Christian thanks for the kind words and the offer! don’t worry about donating; i’m going to make the mp3 files expire after a month or two, so storage should only cost me a few dollars a month.

    and yes, video link in the description is a great idea! will do.

  4. #IndieWeb I’ve always loved @huffduffer! @weegee asked a question that I’ve always struggled with. @schnarfed has already built the answer – naturally.
    Kevin’s (happy birthday by the way) question: “So recently I’ve been using the “Interview” and “lecture” subreddits to find all sorts of great interviews and profiles. However, many of them are in video form on Youtube/Vimeo and the like. Is there any way to huffduff a video to “listen” to? I don’t feel I need to see a lecturer at a podium or interview subject on a couch to get what I’m looking for.”
    I’m not sure why I’m surprised anymore, but it seems like every time I find some really useful bit of web technology, it’s coming out of the extended IndieWeb “Camp” (pun moderately intended). Thanks @adactio and @schnarfed for making my life easier and better.
    I do feel a bit cheated that I didn’t actually find the functionality directly on Huffduffer (or just noticed that it now somehow works with my long-loved Huffduffer bookmarklet). I wonder what other goodness I’m somehow missing out on… (Anyone can feel free to send me a list of their favorite services and other bookmarklets.)#WhatIUse #FTW #Podcasting
