Image from store YoutubeDigest: summarize using ChatGPT
Description from store Discover the power of YouTubeDigest, a cutting-edge tool that leverages ChatGPT AI 🧠 to generate concise and informative summaries of your favorite YouTube videos. Say goodbye to wasted time ⏰ and enhance your productivity by previewing video content before committing to watch. Customize your experience with a range of summary formats: - Get a quick tl;dr summary in a single paragraph. 💨 - Digest the main points with bullet-point summaries. 📋 - Dive deeper with layered bullet points, including video chapters. 📚 - Enjoy a comprehensive overview with article-style summaries. 📰 Unlock additional benefits with our versatile extension: - Choose specific time ranges for tailored summaries. ⏳ - Seamlessly summarize and translate content between languages. 🌍 - Export your summaries as PDF, DOCX, or plain text for easy sharing and reference. 📤 Experience YouTube like never before with YouTubeDigest – your ultimate time-saving companion! 💡 FAQ: Do I need a chatgpt account to run this extension ? Yes, the extension requires that the user has a chatGPT account in order for it to work. How do I make it work in Brave browser ? Disable "Prevent sites from fingerprinting me based on my language preferences" in brave://settings/shields, this is needed because the extension needs to access the session you have for chatgpt and that option is preventing us from doing that. Is this extension able to summarize videos without youtube transcript ? No, right now the video must have a transcript, but this will change in the future. Does it only work for youtube ? That is correct, but we can extend that. If you have any requests, please add it in the support tab. How can I request adding a new language ? Please request the new language from the support tab and we will try to prioritize it.

  • (2023-12-04) Sean Reid: EDIT: NO LONGER FREE. Update around Dec 3rd 2023 added credit system and pay for use. On top of that the summary created on this new update stops producing about 200 words in. Went from the best extension to now just like the rest. OLD REVIEW;Amazing, much better than another summary extension i tried. Honestly its awesome. What are your thoughts on giving us the ability to modify the prompt that sends chatGPT?

  • (2023-07-23) Alvin Mathew Reji: The YouTube Digest Chrome Extension proves to be a fantastic tool, offering personalized video recommendations and a seamless interface. However, to unlock its full potential and reach a broader global audience, incorporating multilingual support is essential. By catering to non-English speakers and breaking language barriers, the extension could facilitate cross-cultural exchange and truly become an indispensable asset for YouTube users worldwide.

  • (2023-11-26, v: Rommil Santiago: Stopped working
    Plugin stopped working
  • (2023-10-27, v: Marlon Palacio: The program stopped working
    Therefore, when I try to use summarize, the following message appears: I was using it normally and suddenly it stopped working. What could have happened?
  • (2023-10-11, v: Fernando Moreno: catalan language
    I heard recently that there are more catalan native speakers than UK English speakers. A lame excuse to suggest adding that language to your arsenal... your main page states from any language to any language which sounded helpful. I am forever trying to get the gist of lengthy youtube presentations. For me your extension is the only AI skill that has made any difference in my life. Whenever I try other areas I find them a waste of time. Are you planning to do other useful extensions?
  • (2023-08-31, v: Enthony Lim: I am getting this when I choose GPT 4

  • (2023-08-14, v: Krishanti Wahla: Won't Transcribe entire 8-minute video
    I am trying to use this to summarize videos I make with titled sections. I am testing on an 8-minute video and it only summarizes to 4:10. Even if I ask for as many as 20 titled sections, it will actually create 20 sections for the first 4 minutes and nothing after that.
  • (2023-08-11, v: Jaime Luque: Report is only the title of the video

  • (2023-07-24, v: Giuseppe Longo: Feature/issue Request
    thank you so much for this great extension. My request: Before the last youtube update, I could view shorts in a normal layout and could use this extension but now with the new layout it's impossible to use youtube digest for shorts video. Can you implement this feature?
  • (2023-07-07, v: Sesamoid: How to solve it?
    Unable to summarize this video. Error is: {"detail":"Our systems have detected unusual activity from your system. Please try again later."}
  • (2023-07-04, v: Ken Haynes: partial vs overall summary ?
    Are the partial summaries more comprehensive than the overall summary ? I do not really understand the difference between the two ?
  • (2023-07-02, v: vitalasbo: STATUS_BREAKPOINT

  • (2023-07-02, v: vitalasbo: Copy text button does not work
    Neither the Copy button works nor the Download/Copy selection
  • (2023-06-14, v: Q: Error while summarizing
    Hey, I've been really enjoying the extension. Especially like the ability to summarize into an article. It's been a life saver, especially for some of those longer videos. Though I'm running into an issue, four days after I began using the extension. When I try and Summarize the video now, I run into this error: "Unable to summarize this video. Error is: {"detail":"Our systems have detected unusual activity from your system. Please try again later."}" It's been like this for about 36 hours. Thanks!
  • (2023-06-13, v: Phuong Anh Dao: Bug: Blank pop-up
    Before I click the "ChatGPT Summary" button in the youtube page, if I click the gear icon, the pop-up will be blank.
  • (2023-06-12, v: Phuong Anh Dao: Features request
    Hi, could you consider adding a feature which cleans up the auto-generated transcription (eg: punctuations, capitalization) and produces a full transcription, either with or without timestamps? Thank you very much!

  • (2023-06-05, v: Just Sturgis: Doesn't seem to work
    Since I installed I have been trying to summarize a video. It remains stuck on "Waiting for ChatGPT response..." Not sure if it is a setting or something else. Eightify is the only tool I have been able to get to work so far.
  • (2023-05-25, v: Anuj Patel: YouTube Digest with GPT sheets
    Hey! Just tried your chrome extension. Pretty cool. Can you create a tool that summarize the YouTube videos in Google sheet after giving the prompt to ChatGPT?

    Nice app! Sadly it is hiding the Save to Playlist button...
  • (2023-05-12, v: Iván Yoed: Feature suggestion.
    Do you know what could be of great benefit too? Creating a feature to summarize comments too. Like creating a summary of a long comment or creating a summary of a set of comments (which might be more difficult). Hope the suggestion is useful and thanks again guys.
  • (2023-05-06, v: CatCitizen Citizen: Does it fully transcribe?
    I need full complete transcription. Is this possible with gpt?
  • (2023-05-04, v: Pablo: Updates
    You need to put the posibility for conect with the OpenAi api
  • (2023-05-03, v: Phuong Anh Dao: Bug: Copy button
    When I click the copy button with two-square icon (I think that's the function), nothing happens.
  • (2023-05-03, v: Phuong Anh Dao: Features request
    Hi, may I suggest the following features: 1. Add a close (x) button in the "Custom Video Settings" pop-up inside youtube page. Once I open it, I cannot close it even if I click outside the pop-up. 2. Add input box for "Custom time range". It's easier to type the specific timecode than drag the bar. 3. Allow adding note in addition to the extension promts: within the "Custom Video Settings" pop-up, could you allow users to enter their "note" to provide chatgpt the context for summary. This can help chatgpt produce better results. 4. Bug: Before I click the "ChatGPT Summary" button in the youtube page, if I click the gear icon, the pop-up will be blank.
  • (2023-05-01, v: Rintcius Blok: Are you seeing replies to messages?
    It looks like you are not seeing replies to messages, not sure of course but judging by: * in your reply to the problem I raised, it looks like you hadn't seen my reply to my own message that I was using Brave, since you replied asking the same. * I answered a second time (now 4 days ago), but no reply to that Just thought I'd mention because you answer most of the top level messages
  • (2023-04-26, v: Robert Christ: Cloudfare check?
    The plugin says I have to enable the cloudfare chat in chat GPT. How can I do that?
  • (2023-04-25, v: Dmytro Tkachuk: Ukrainian lenguge support
    Hi, thank you for developing such an great tool. It would be amazing if you provide support for ukrainian lenguage.
  • (2023-04-21, v: Rintcius Blok: Does not summarize anymore
    I installed the plugin yesterday and it worked fine, but it stopped working today. At first I was directed to open.ai to login, but the plugin didn't recognize that I logged in. At the moment it doesn't even go to open.ai but it logs Unable to summarize this video. Error is: Failed to fetch
  • (2023-04-18, v: Daniel Carreon: timestamp suggestion
    excellent app so far! small suggestion would be to include the video timestamps in the documents or pdf exports. as of now i just copy the full text displayed in the widget window along with the timestamps, then paste into word. I use the "set of titled sections" so i need to click each one to reveal the text before copying.
  • (2023-04-14, v: R D: Unecessary Summarize button forces playlist saving to "..." submenu
    It's necessary to have an additional "Summarize" button beside the thumbs up/down when that functionality is already in the sidebar section. Ideally it could be hidden entirely, or at the least be placed after crucial YT functionality like playlist saving which gets hidden into a sub-menu by the add-on. Even if the UI element is blocked by ABP the other YT features remain in a sub-menu. If it's not possible to (re)move the element, perhaps if the font was small enough it could also the other YT options to remain visible. Lastly, it would be great if we could cancel summaries in progress. Thanks.
