Here are step-by-step instructions for converting your audio podcast into vertical video clips and publishing them to IGTV and Instagram:

Setting up Connections:
- Go to the "Connections" page in Repurpose.
- Ensure you have added your audio podcast as a connection. If not, click on "Add Connection," select "Audio Podcast," and provide the necessary details.

Creating a Workflow:
- Navigate to the "Workflow" page and click on "Create Workflow."
- Name the workflow (e.g., "Podcast to Dropbox for IGTV - Vertical Format").
- Select the audio podcast as the source.

Choosing Snippets:
- Since IGTV has a maximum limit of 10 minutes, choose the "Snippets" option to generate shorter video clips.

Selecting Dropbox Folder:
- Click on the folder icon to choose the specific Dropbox folder where the clips will be stored. Organizing them in a designated folder helps with management.

Generating Clips:

Adjusting Settings:

- Customize the template, adding titles, subtitles, and adjusting the default snippet duration as per your preference.

Saving Settings:

Uploading to Dropbox:

Uploading to IGTV:

- Add a title, description, hashtags, and select a cover image.

Sharing Preview on Feed:

Scheduling Posts:

Auto-Generating Clips (Optional):
