VidScan - Timelines of your favorite YouTube videos

VidScan sample

There are many YouTube videos with maybe 5 seconds of content buried in between 3 minutes of video footage. I’ve written this tool - VidScan - to help make sense of such videos.

VidScan analyses comments on any YouTube videos and creates a timeline using them. For example, here is a timeline of a video of an Indian street. All time stamps are deep-linked to the YouTube snippet, so clicking lets you jump directly to that part.
