Description from store This plugin has been designed as a verification “Swiss army knife” helping journalists, fact-checkers and human rights defenders to save time and be more efficient in their fact-checking and debunking tasks on social networks especially when verifying videos and images. This is a new version redesigned within the Horizon 2020 EU innovation action WeVerify. The provided tools allow you to quickly get contextual information on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube videos, to perform reverse image search on Google, Yandex, Bing, Tineye, Baidu or Karma Decay (for Reddit) search engines, to fragment videos from various platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter, Daily Motion) into keyframes, to enhance and explore keyframes and images through a magnifying lens, to query Twitter more efficiently through time intervals and many other filters, to read video and image metadata, to check the video copyrights, and to apply forensic filters on still images. Thanks to give us your feedback in order to improve the toolbox. The plugin was launched in July 2017 by the InVID European project, a Horizon 2020 innovation action funded by the European Union under grant agreement 687786. It is provided in English, French and Spanish language. For more information on InVID, visit our InVID website (www.invid-project.eu) or follow us on Twitter (@InVID_EU). It is now maintained and will be further enhanced by the WeVerify project, funded by the European Union under grant agreement 825297.

  • (2019-02-28) Ashhab Ashraf: Very helpful to bust fake videos. I actually downloaded as in India we have serious trouble with enormous amounts of fake videos circulating and shared over the social media. Fake information are being generated to create communal hatred which in turn results in disharmony and results in riots and tensions. All these for political gains! Even the government does this.
