@uniq hi, well youtube offers rss feed, so you don't really need any tool to make a feed out of a channel.
For example, the feed for BBC Earth is
@arteteco those are not podcast feeds, just RSS feeds containing links to youtubes website.
A podcast feed on the other hand has direct links to audio/video files. So pod-catchers can play the media content in a local madiaplayer app. eg antennapods built in video player.
@uniq if you can go on and have one tap more for the "Download audio" button in newpipe you are all set :)
But I can see how having a more integrated way of proceeding can be useful, sure thing.
