Thank you for sharing this update! I create lots of video and audio content and have yet to bring them to Substack. This stack will inspire me to get GLOWING!

This is amazing. I recently wrote a humor post about my frustrations with iMovie. This editing feature is awesome. Thx!

This is an exciting update! I've been using clips of my workshops uploaded to Substack for promo and have run into quite a few bugs. This looks like it will resolve those issues.

Question - is there a limit of how long clips can be?

5 minutes is the max length :)

Yesterday was the first time I recorded a podcast because Substack made it so easy. It’s something I thought of doing earlier but it looked too complicated. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Love the idea of the video clipper and will be trying it. But quoting someone who writes about AI praising the chatbot isn't persuasive. Your users will be the judge. Btw I'm already dealing with a paid subscriber who is unhappy that he can't reach a person when the Chatbot sends him in circles. Except me, of course, and that's not great.

I just got here, and you're making me want to leave already. I'll never knowingly use AI to produce my work. I want to interact with people, and I'm in the process of leaving Facebook because they pushed this collaging plagiarizer in my face.

I hope this isn't a sign of things to come on this platform.

The good news is, we don’t have to use these features! They can be that weird shaped wrench in the bottom of the toolbox. I have uses the video transcription, but I had to do a ton of editing on it to make it coherent. (It was when they first rolled out video so they may have improved it.) I’ve used the AI chatbot and had to ask for a human (which they got). But no matter how tempting I will never ever use the image generation. I’d rather stick with my own crappy drawings thanks.

Thank you so much for adding these features. I never experienced a platform adding features at this pace. Kudos to the Substack team!

Great additions - can we have better oEmbed support next, please, so we can add more options than just YouTube, Apple Podcasts, or Spotify? Thanks.

Will be using for my podcast and to make my newsletter/blog become more interactive! Thanks!

It would be great to be able to access a setting option for lower resolution of videos for smoother playback when necessary.

Video clip is a fabulous idea! Thank you Substack and Jasmine for such a clear walk-through.
