Description (last modified by mrfoxtalbot)

I would like to be able to listen to WordPress.tv videos as a podcast (audio) feed. There are great talks there and not all of them require video. The idea is to create custom podcast feeds based on the language, speaker, the event or even the topic.

These feeds already exist, we would just need to create an audio only version of the talk and make it available alongside the original post/video.

By Tag https://wordpress.tv/tag/wordpresscom/feed/
By Speaker https://wordpress.tv/speakers/alvaro-gomez-velasco/feed/
By Event https://wordpress.tv/event/wordpress-meetup-valencia/feed/
By Language https://wordpress.tv/language/spanishespanol/feed/
By Date https://wordpress.tv/2012/feed/

This new feature would only require two steps:

  1. Generate an audio version of each of the videos.
  2. Modify the feed to offer the audios
  3. Show a link to this audio feed somewhere on the single video template.

Adding this feature would unlock a ton of existing content for podcast listeners and, since the content is already there, the ROI would be immense.

  1. Generate an audio version of each of the videos.

This actually exists now, as when VideoPress changed how it does it's encoding it split the videos into split audio+video tracks (which caused the Low/Medium/High variants to sometimes be without audio).

I'm not sure if VideoPress exposes that to us though (but I'm fairly sure it does).
