    Hi folks,

    sorry for the title gore, I meant channels like this on YT: /channel/UCZD1VRGZOFyD7zKObmpt3bw/videos
    Bots scrape news sites and upload the news automatically including pics and text-to-voice.

    I wanted to start something similar for a different niche, can anybody help me out? I can't find anything on Google other than blog posts comdemning them.

    Thanks a lot in advance! Have a great Saturday

    post makes perfect sense mate, WTF are you taking about (talking)!!!

    And to OP, I've never seen a publicly available tool to do this but basically if the speech in the videos is just the exact same as the txt in the original news article, it would not be too hard to make a bot to do that.

    if the speech in the video is not just copied from some source text, then obviously its generated and that is a different kettle of fish (still doable though)

    It should be easy to ask to someone to do an app to gather images and read the text.

    That videos aren't bots, I guess.

    From what I gathered they are, you basically create a channel, configure everything and you can basically leave it alone. I've seen channels with ~30-40 videos per day for months. Or somebody is really busy.
