Description from store Update 6/15/202 - bug fixes Update 4/7/2020 - bookmark lines - copy all lines Update 2/26/2019 - select and tweet, copy Update 2/13/2019 - timestamps switch - change font size - show captions above the preview thumbnail on the seek bar Cut to the chase! Save time watching YouTube videos by filtering their subtitles and skipping uninteresting parts. If you love watching talk shows, podcasts, talks and so on, you are probably going to love Seek Subtitles. Seek Subtitles takes the subtitles of YouTube videos and puts them in a vertical, scroll-able and search-able format. As a consequence you can access the relevant information much faster. You can skip intros and intermezzos and long irrelevant filler contents. For videos that don't actually contain a video and contain speeches you can read along - it will automatically scroll as the video progresses. [Open and close the panel with a simple button below the video.] You can switch between Light and Dark themes. IF you want you can donate some bitcoin to this address: 3QF9C6mPy7uc6Fmf9duWpG14TNT15nYKbz which is also in the About section along with the QR code. Thank you.

  • (2022-04-09) Talha Quershi: waste of time
  • (2022-03-25) Carina Mun: I was able to use this for free YouTube classes. But this isn't as user friendly as it seems. I can't activate timestamps cause i can't find the settings for it. Believe me I tried
  • (2022-02-25) Dung Trinh: tôi đã tải app về nhưng lúc xem thì lại ko thấy bản dịch
  • (2022-01-09) Mack: would be perfect by copy selected is useless if I have to double click the sentence to highlight then go to tools and press that button. I can just ctrl+c. Better would be copy selected line with ctrl+c so I dont have to double click. Guess I can use an autocopy extension as a workaround. Thanks for this.
  • (2021-12-08) Lan Nguyễn: phần dịch không đúng ,làm rối video

  • (2021-02-06) Saksham Dahiya: workjust fine but use too much cpu since my laptop is very old
  • (2021-02-02) Marco Stucchi: L'unica che funziona!! Unica estensione fra tutte quelle del chrome web store che permette di cercare al volo il testo nei sottotitoli, anche cambiando la lingua dei sottotitoli, anche nei sottotitoli generati automaticamente!! LA MIGLIORE!!!!!
  • (2020-12-27) havewisdom: Very good. However, unlike the example screen, time information (time code) does not appear. Subtitles appear well. It would be nice if the time information was also modified. Thank you.
  • (2020-09-11) Irineu França: não acontece como descrito
  • (2020-09-04) Ryan L: Awesome extension! Thank you very much for making it, it was exactly what I was looking for! The only thing missing that I could really use is a hotkey to activate the extension. I loved the way this similar extension implemented the ability to use ctrl f to search through videos on the first press by activating the extension followed by using google's default search function upon a second press https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/searchtube/pfmdbkkboalciianlgbcbfooepmkkhhi?hl=en
  • (2020-07-31) Rong Udomchok: Very useful.
  • (2020-04-08) Gersivan Oliveira: Versão 1.1.1 - Funciona corretamente. É uma das 5 extensões que mais me ajuda. Versão 1.1.4 - Excelente upgrade: marcar e listar bookmarks.
  • (2020-04-07) José S.: Actually I love it!, good job when creating this add-on for YouTube, it would be more amazing if this had the option of multiple languges, if possible, could you please add that feature in the next version?
  • (2020-03-09) Oussama Naim: This extension is godsend.
  • (2020-01-18) Samir Tilazadə: Loved it
  • (2020-01-14) Andree Garcia: It doesn't work anymore. :(
  • (2019-10-05) Алекc Флинт: Thanks so much for the app. If possible, remove the Twitter panel from above; I constantly have to close it. Even if possible, add the ability to fix the selected position in the middle. The line is constantly moving from top to bottom jumping this is inconvenient for learning a language. Thank you very much for your work. I really hope that my proposals will be noted by you.
  • (2019-08-07) AV Va: Well done!
  • (2019-08-02) 송창호: Thank you for making a good extension. But I have one request. I would like to have an option to turn off tweet and copy on the setting screen. It is good but it interferes with language study.
  • (2019-07-18) Kevin Smith: does not work
  • (2019-07-07) remo capt.: good job! if they allow the user to hide the tweet copy button that will be even better!!
  • (2019-06-23) MoreThanOptions Leo: It's really awesome. Nice app!
  • (2019-06-02) Jonathan Butler: It does what it's suppose to do.
  • (2019-04-18) yrLDtLnt: Can you make the background transparent?
  • (2019-02-06) Cody Phillips: Not working anymore unfortunately. When clicking seek the overlay window doesnt pop up anymore.
  • (2019-02-05) Mister McBlubbercus: Works perfectly.
  • (2019-01-08) husoranger: this is something amazing, but may you please add a feature to increase the subtitle fonts, i mean i want to be able to manually resize the fonts as i wish.... that is a need for me
  • (2018-12-31) Melih Pekcan: doesnt activate
  • (2018-12-07) Disciple de Jésus-Christ: marche
  • (2017-09-11) Boris Turk: Great app! Many times I remember some word from the movie/documentary, but I don't know when it was spoken. This app is a perfect solution.
  • (2017-09-11) Iva Stritar: Zelo uporabno! Nič več ne zapravljam časa za spremljanje in iskanje relevantne vsebine, saj razširitev omogoča enostavno in hitro iskanje vsebine po videih.Koristno tudi pri izpisu besedila "lyrics" pesmi.

  • (2021-01-30, v:1.1.7) Rainbowsaur: Needs a hotkey for bookmarking.
    Hotkey for bookmarking? View list of bookmarks, and videos bookmarked. Love the addon as it is, but would be perfect if there was a hotkey to add a bookmark to current line, Its very inconvenient to need to click inside the menu. Also needing to navigate to a video you've bookmarked some things on in the past is abit hard, as you'll need to remember what you watched or like the video.
  • (2020-05-08, v:1.1.6) John Herring: Bookmarking
    this extension has been extremely helpful to me the only question I have is how to use the bookmark feature on it

    Hi just wondering if there's an open-sourced repository for contribution, thanks!

  • (2019-11-10, v:1.1.0) Thiên Minh: this is so awesome!
    Hi dev! This add-on is very good ideal for learning english! But it may be better if i could display sub in a separate window like add-on "Netflix subtitles pop-up"! I often what video fullscreen and see close captions on second screen, it 's so greate. I hope you could add this function in to add-on someday! Thank you for the free-very good- add-on! Thank you so much!

  • (2019-02-28, v:1.1.0) Gersivan Oliveira: Please, change the link "About"
    The "About" link would be more intuitive as "Option". Find out only today that is where I change the timestamp display. Grateful for your work, it helps me a lot.
  • (2018-08-16, v:1.0.7) Dual language subtitles display simultaneously
    Current extension works well as advertised. Suggest additional features to help students of another language to learn - to display 2 srt files simultaneously. Retain original spoken language's subtitle at bottom of video while translated subtitle on right panel for cross referencing. Also need option to supply own srt file if Youtube has no or only one language srt file. Bravo!
