So apparently, after researching I found out that podcast means a recorded video that we can hear/view online and we can download it through digital devices such as PC/laptop. But if that's the case aren't all youtube videos considered a podcast? Or am I wrong?

  • A podcaster typically issues new podcasts periodically, whereas a YouTube video could be a one-off. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Feb 1 '17 at 13:46
  • What does that mean? – Okama Ksakas Feb 1 '17 at 13:48
  • What word or phrase did you not understand? – Tᴚoɯɐuo Feb 1 '17 at 14:14
  • Well.. you explained the word using the word podcast which really doesn't make much sense as I am asking for the word podcast not podcaster... Also I would like to know why my question is downvoted? – Okama Ksakas Feb 1 '17 at 14:19
  • Because you did not include your "research". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Feb 1 '17 at 14:22

Podcasts are often audio only.

They are similar to radio shows which talk about a certain topic for a certain amount of time.

Podcasts may be uploaded to YouTube as a video, but there is usually an audio-only version to accompany it.

I found this definition on dictionary.com:

A digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.

  • Well there's this video that shows an animated video and audio, so aren't they the same thing? Link: youtube.com/watch?v=KAd3KVSDPpU – Okama Ksakas Feb 1 '17 at 13:52
  • Yes. That is a podcast. There is the video version on YouTube and the audio-only version can be downloaded from iTunes. – Curtis White Feb 1 '17 at 14:00
  • Ah so podcast is audio only, kinda funny how google defines it terribly and complicatedly thank you for your time kind sir. – Okama Ksakas Feb 1 '17 at 14:03
