I grabbed a quote from a transcript of a snippet of a YouTube video today for my blog.
I use the MacWhisper macOS desktop app to run Whisper. It's a very pleasant GUI wrapper around the Whisper transcription model.
Usually I pull a full YouTube video using yt-dlp and then drop the resulting
.mp4 file into MacWhisper to transcribe the whole thing.
Today I realized there's a faster way if I just want a transcript of a few minutes from the video:
Once the transcription is done you can hit the "Copy" button to copy out the text - I then usually drop it into VS Code to make a few minor edits.
Here's a GIF of the whole process:
