How does this automation work?

Bardeen introduces an innovative way to digest video content faster by automating the creation of audio summaries for YouTube videos. Whether you're conducting research or trying to catch up on content, converting video to an audio summary can save precious time. This workflow uses OpenAI to generate concise summaries and transform them into audio format, making information consumption more efficient.

Here's how this workflow processes a YouTube video summary into an audio file:

  • Step 1: Extract Video ID - Bardeen identifies the YouTube video ID from the current page URL using a regular expression to pinpoint the unique identifier.
  • Step 2: Get Transcript URL - Using the video ID, Bardeen constructs the URL for the YouTube video's transcript page.
  • Step 3: Scrape Transcript Data - The transcript data is then scraped from the generated URL using Bardeen's scraping capabilities.
  • Step 4: Summarize Transcript - Bardeen prefaces the scraped transcript with a prompt and sends it to OpenAI to generate a summary of the video.
  • Step 5: Convert Summary to Audio - The AI-generated summary is converted into an audio file, providing a convenient way to review video content without watching it.
