Create YouTube time tags with simple keyboard shortcuts

Image from store TimeTags for YouTube
Description from store We all know that YouTube has a feature that you can tag(bookmark) any specific time of the current video with a video timestamp format like `11:25` in comments. I found that when you try to create lots of tags for a longer-duration video, it's pretty annoying to write down the tag manually (in text editors like notepad). You have to switch back and forth between different apps. And it's even more annoying when you try to ensure the tagged time is accurate and precise. So I created this extension to help me solve the problem. Now I can pretty much use just keyboard to add and adjust tags right in the YouTube interface. Feedbacks are welcome. # Usage Browse to any YouTube video, click the icon of the extension in browser bar to activate it. ## Shortcuts - [delete, backspace] remove tag (affects active tag) - [left] backward 5 seconds (affects active tag) - [alt+left] backward 1 second (affects active tag) - [right] forward 5 seconds (affects active tag) - [alt+right] forward 1 second (affects active tag) - [space] pause/play - [a] add a tag at current time - [/] edit the description of active tag - [d] edit the description of active tag (for new YouTube design) - [esc] cancel active tag Shortcuts won't work when YouTube's bulit-in shortcuts is active (which means your focus is currently on the video element). ## Storage Tags are currently saved locally in your computer. ## Export/Import To export, click on the "printer" icon. Results will be copied to your clipboard, in the format: ``` {tag 1} {description 1} {tag 2} {description 2} . . {tag N} {description N} ``` To import, click on the button next to "add" button. Import shares the exact same format with export. # Changelog ## 1.3.2 - Fix youtube player retrieve issue ## 1.3.1 - Fix spacebar shortcut issue ## 1.3.0 - Fix time tag display issue - Support Dark Mode ## 1.2.0 - Remove "tabs" permission - Default to sync storage of Chrome - Add shortcut for "remove" - Update for new YouTube design component change ## 1.1.0 - Support new YouTube design - Tag list will become scrollable when it feels overwhemled - Add keyboard shortcut `d` for editing active tag description, due to `/` is already used by the new YouTube ## 1.0.0 Add "import" function. ## 0.0.1 First release.

  • (2020-03-22) Shaun Kelly: Thank you for making this. I, as many, have experienced the exact annoyance you point out in the add-ons description, where making a txt file full of time notes for long videos is tedious. This is exactly what I was hoping for when I went looking. Gratitude for sharing your efforts.

    Seria muito melhor se tiver uma forma de exportar/importar e se possível, pesquisar quando existir muitos links de um mesmo vídeo. Parabéns pela sua criação!
