YouTube is certainly one if not the best way to generate lots of quick and fast views traffic. The main drawback for bloggers is that video creation is not as simple and easy for some. And invideo may help or at least assist in some part to address this problem.
invideo: free and easy way to convert posts for YouTube
- Sign up at invideo.io
- Select Text to video, video size (use default), and then any of the tons of templates of your liking
- Select option 2, paste the post URL with auto-suggest enabled and click Fetch
- Click auto-summarize. Edit and delete the scenes. Click Go To Storyboard once done.
- At the storyboard editor, we may upload a logo to apply to the video, upload images to add to the scenes, edit sentences, add or delete scenes, arrange scenes sequence, and then download it. We can even search and add short video clips!
- Optional: More editing options can be done from the Advanced editor (top of storyboard editor)
- Wait for rendering to finish and receive an email notification.
Note: Music is added and changes saved automatically.
Remember that we can also search and add video clips by clicking the Video icon on the far left.
Rendering a video can be done in just seconds or minutes.
Optional: We can create a simple video this way just like the uploaded YoutTube example above. However, more professional videos may require more finesse than that. This is where the advanced editor at the top of the storyboard editor comes in.
How fast can I create an invideo video from a blog post?
With invideo, I signed up, created a basic video less than 4 minutes in length in about an hour or two, and took another 30 minutes to an hour for some slight improvements before downloading the video again.
Another 2-3 hours of coming up with the description, uploading it to YouTube, and designing the thumbnail in Canva.
About 4-5 hours on a short video on my first invideo attempt. You are likely to be better than me at this.
With experience and probably a better internet connection, the time can be shorter and the video quality improved.
What are the advantages of invideo?
invideo can quickly generate a video from pre-made templates (5000+) and a URL blog post for customization. It is useful to have a basic structure so we can edit and add more images.
Music is automatically applied. Or we can also use YouTube’s free music selection after uploading. All changes are saved quickly.
The storyboard editor is straightforward and intuitive.
The free account can add up to 50 scenes, but we can keep it short to less than 3 minutes.
There is also an automated text to speech feature, 3M+ media, and allows 40 minutes of video duration. And all these for free. The upgrade is $15 per month.
What are the limitations of a free invideo account?
There will be an invideo watermark according to invideo, but I do not seem to see it in the video uploaded to YouTube. And a 50 scenes limit.

Depending on your computer, it may be slow at times with high memory consumption to load and work on a video from a webpage. Also, I have not fully researched how YouTube may act toward common invideo media on their platform in the future.
invideo can be an excellent fit for microbloggers’ short post content and YouTube video creators who do not wish to show their face or speak their own voice. We can produce YouTube videos with certain general niches that are available with invideo media.
My second attempt to create an invideo video seemed to improve with better and more varied auto-suggested images. The nature of the topic for video creation clearly matters.

In hindsight, I recommend video creators take advantage by adding any relevant quality video clips listed in the invideo video search to improve viewers’ experience.
Professional video creators may improve with the advanced editor and upgrade to access 1M+ premium media in addition to the free account’s 3M+ Standard media.
