I’m going to show you how to repurpose your facebook live videos and get them transcribed for free. So I hope this is helpful for you. So basically, what I wanted to show you is this service here, which is called otter. So you just need to go to otter.ai, and you’ll get to this, this page, and you just need to sign up for for free. And it actually offers us 600 minutes of transcription, it’s a machine transcription service. But it does a really great job of transcribing what you’re saying in your videos.
It offers 600 minutes, which is really generous. So you just sign up for this, this here, you can just just fill out your name and and then you’ll be going into your account which is something like this.
So what I wanted to show you is once I show you how to get to your how to download your Facebook video. So this is one of my Facebook Lives that I did. And you just go to this page where it shows you the nearly full screen and you come to this, these three little dots here and you’ll be able to download your video there. Now I’ve already downloaded it to save waiting for it to download while we’re on a live video. But all you need to do is download it here to your computer.
And then you come to otter voice notes. Once you’ve signed up for your account, and you just come to conversations or will come to the the app. And if you can click on conversations here. And you just need to import your audio or video.
So I have one here that I downloaded already. And it does take a little while to upload and to actually create the transcript. So I’m just going to show you how to do it. Once this says done, we’re just click the Done button.
And then I’ll show you where you can download the transcript. So that one’s actually processing. Oh, sorry, this one’s actually processing. And it does take a few minutes to process.
But this one is one that I did a little bit earlier. So we click on this link. And you can see that it’s transcribed everything that I said in that video.
So now we just want to come to these three little dots here. And you can see that you can actually export the audio as well. So it’s actually already created an audio file for you. So you could actually use that again to repurpose your Facebook Lives if you want to make it into a podcast, for example. But for this example, we’re just going to show show you how to export, export the text. And that way you can use it for blog posts.
So you you just use the text and you just need to edit the text so that it’s suitable for a blog post. And then you’re done. So it’s a great way to sort of make the most of the content that you’re creating.
So that you know, you don’t have to think of another blog post to write, you can just repurpose your live videos and make them into a blog post.
From there, you can even create little snippets that you could use in your social media, there are many ways that you can repurpose your content. But this is just one of them.
When you come to this screen, you can you can actually choose whether or not you want to keep the timestamps or the name. So obviously the speaker names will take off because it says unknown there anyway.
And if you were you think you could actually you leave the timestamps in there, if you are using this as just a transcription to put below your video, for example, you could use that for, you know, inside your courses, or just if you wanted to make a blog post, which was the actual video and then you the transcription underneath you could use the timestamps, but if you want to format the the text into a normal blog post with adding video, adding images, etc, then perhaps you just want to take away those timestamps. So it’s been like a readable sort of format that you can then edit.
That’s all you need to do really, so that you just click continue and you will be downloading a text file that you can then repurpose for your blog and really that that’s all that I wanted to share with you today.
Please let me know if you have any questions I’m happy to answer them. I do have a way to do it to transcribe everything, which is a more automated system, but I think that this is a great way to start to repurpose your content. So let me know if you have any questions and I’ll see you in the next video. Thank you. Bye bye.
The original Facebook live can be found here. I followed the same process shown in the video, and for this blog post, I only edited the transcript very minimally, it was transcribed by and you can sign up here – Otter.
