    Hey,

    so I've seen some of these before and nobody could ever explain to me how this works. So basically this person has a program that takes a text from an article (or makes a summary) and also the picture, it then creates a video with text-to-speech and uploads it to YT.

    There are nearly 9.000 videos on this channel alone since January 16, since they are uploaded nonstop I doubt this person is doing it manually. Any ideas?

    45-50 videos per day! This must be done using some video editing software like adobe premiere or Final Cut Pro or Sony Vegas etc etc.
    Creating 1 creative video in 5-7 days is more profitable than creating 50 shit videos in a day.
    As a user are you going to watch his videos??
    Sorry my reply was not related to your question, because his videos are very irritating.

    1st reply: You realize he is not creating these videos with video editing software, right? It's automated obviously.
    2nd reply: Great reply.
    3rd reply: Really? You think he mass uploads, because he uploaded 9k videos in 8 months? ...

    To upload 9K vids in 8 months "manually "and get only 600K views , you have to be brain dead

    He's using a text to speech software. And apart from using the software its all manual. There is no bot which can automate everything he's done. Like add image , add subtitles etc

    Of Course you could setup a bot to upload your videos but the rest is manual.

    My god, people, if you have no clue, please don't reply with obvious stuff. Yes, it's text-to-speech, that's is very obvious to anyone of us. And yes, the other stuff is automated as well. If you would do some research than you'd know that there are companies that provide a similar service (automatically generated videos from news articles, except the voice overs are done manually).

    PLEASE stop replying if you have no clue, so far no comment was actually helping at all and most of you are more clueless than I am, telling me it's not possible.

    Sorry about my rude tone, but these replies are really just.... dumb.
    Example: http://www.articlevideorobot.com/

    Some of you guys really think there is a guy creating these videos 24/7 manually, my god.

    You realize each one of those useless answers bumps your thread which in turn gives it more exposure = Better chance of finding someone who knows the score.

    No reply is useless on a forum.

    Okay, so i got your point now. You are looking to create at least 50 videos per day without putting any efforts.
    STEP 1. Go to app store( play store if you are using Android)
    STEP 2. Download talking Tom and Ben news app.
    STEP 3. Read and record your article with your voice.
    STEP 4. Upload your video on verified YouTube account.

    This is a VA run operation despite that some elements of it are moderately automated, and this guy likely runs 50-60 channels like this if you look for them. Anyway, I do KNOW what software is used to make the videos, and it is ProShow Producer by photodex, and there's nothing special about it OP. The answers to your questions are here in the thread:

    1. It's barely automated.
    2. They use some software applications.
    3. The VA's do all the work.
    4. You're only seeing one channel of a 50-60 channel enterprise project.

    Finally, why ask for help if you object to the answers? OP - you were quite rude on top of being wrong throughout with your observations. Probably you should be out looking for your "pot of gold."

    I think the real gem here for those looking for it is the use of the Twitter account with the cards to get these article based videos to rank. @shortnews_ with almost no followers, but 10.5k tweets all with Twitter cards. Very interesting ranking/indexing mechanism perhaps.

    I wonder if any of these G search results are the same guy ... https://www.google.com/search?sclie...stralian+backpack+stabbing&btnK=Google+Search

    "1. It's barely automated." Why do you guys think there is somebody doing this literally 24/7 MANUALLY. How do you even think this works? The time between the videos is far too short to create it manually. For me it's obvious he/they do it in a low-quality way like this professional company (there is a chinese pendant I can't find right now):

    2. Well, no shit :)
    4. Yes, probably.

    The Twitter is just connected to his YT, so once a video is uploaded, a tweet is sent out. Nothing magical here (created at the same time as the YT channel as well).

    You can absolutely automate that process, in it's entirety. Maybe not with a 'bot' that you pick up for $50, but with some knowledge of computer programming, you can automate just about anything.
