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 - [d] edit the description of active tag - [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 ## 1.4.5 - Remove unnecessary site `permissions` specified for Firefox support in Chrome build ## 1.4.4 - Fix "sync" feature recent videos ordering bug - Optimize sync compression performance (UX) - Refine tag description display in different container widths ## 1.4.3 - Add `chrome.storage.local` as primary storage option - "Sync" feature of Chrome - Now syncs recently updated 100 videos only - Compress `chrome.storage.sync` data to better utilize the quota (100kB max) - Store video id, video title information for upcoming features ## 1.4.2 - Firefox support ## 1.4.0 - Export in Markdown format - CommentList UI: add time tags in comments to your collection ## 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.

  • (2021-07-07) 53 Syed Muddasir: thaanks
  • (2021-06-24) blue: Great!! Very easy to use and it remembers the time tags I made, so even if I accidentally reload the page, they're still there! There are some suggestion though; I want a keyboard shortcut and making the arrow keys to apply to the youtube video not the time tags. And it would be great if I can put number zero in front of the time tags to make them the same digit. They look much more organized. (ex. If I tag both 1:00 and 10:00, it automatically changes 1:00 to 01:00)
  • (2021-06-21) Bibek Maharjan: Can I disable shortcut keys or remap it cause it is interfering with another extension's shortcut key?
  • (2021-06-10) Bibek Maharjan: I love this extension. However, I would suggest a few things to change and add: 1. Disable auto-loading of timestamps from the comments as in some videos there are hundred comments with timestamps which I don't want to use. 2. Include a tab for loading timestamps of chapters that is embedded in the video.
  • (2021-06-06) Gersivan Oliveira: Versão 1.4.4 | Atualização: 6 de junho de 2021 2021-06-06 - Ótimo upgrade. Pena que daqui a pouco será removida porque o Youtube não gosta de extensões práticas e produtivas que economizam tempo do usuário. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Funciona somente no antigo layout do Youtube. Suporta playlists; importação / exportação.
  • (2021-03-07) Michael Washboard: This works well and is simple to use, it's helpful that this allows you to import and export time stamps, especially with uploads that is an entire albums/mixes with non.
  • (2021-03-03) Ali Muhannad: Great extension I was looking for such thing for quite a while, although, I wish that I could group some highlights of the same video with a specific color, for example I'm watching a lecture then I may able to color the TimeTags of chapter one in Red, Chapter two with blue and so on.
  • (2021-02-15) moonlaney: I love this extension! I recently switched to Firefox, will this ever be compatible on Firefox as well?
  • (2021-02-12) Lyndon Williams: Hi! Thanks for making this. I can't seem to get it to work properly. I have loaded the extension and activated it, but when I am testing it, I can't seem to get it to work. Are there any common problems or mistakes that I am making here? Thank you!
  • (2021-02-12) havewisdom: Thank you for making a great app. This has made YouTube more efficient and educational. Greedily, I would like to give you additional suggestions. You can add multiple time tags in the video. Could you create a dashboard management window screen where you can see the time tag recorded in this way by video and by detailed location in the video? One by one, time tags are created and you have to find them again to see them later, and sometimes they are missing in the process. Thank you
  • (2021-01-03) 박준하: Holy Moly Guacamolei this is so great extension
  • (2020-12-31) Tim Lai: would be great, if it could (automaticly?) import from the description
  • (2020-11-25) Parker Conley: Great idea. Something I've needed for a bit now. One request: Would it be possible to the "Remove YouTube Recommended, Comments" Extension? When I remove the recommendation bar your extension is removed.
  • (2020-07-23) Nichita Matei: excellent app, works exactly how I expected. perfect.
  • (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.
  • (2020-03-13) 박건: Holy cow this is EXACTLY what I needed. Very happy to find your extension !

    Love it but if you could also make it ad a circle or something on the timebar of the video when we annotate that would be amazing! Also, if we could have markdown or rich text options to annotate would also be hreat!
  • (2021-02-12, v:1.3.2) GUNPLANNER LABORATORY: 今追加したばかりなのですが YouTubeのタグ 表示されません
  • (2020-03-22, v:1.3.1) qawsedrftgyh: error
    I'm troubled because the tags are not saved when the number of tags increases.

    It doesn't work with new platForm youtube youtube.com/new
  • (2017-06-08, v:0.0.1) Gersivan Oliveira: Backup - Filter - Search
    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!
