  • (2020-12-16, v:2.1.9) Heath Mitchell: Suggestion: Searching channels/search results?
    It would be really useful (especially for those parody YTP things where they mix words from different videos and for finding information about a specific topic) if you could search an entire channel, but it might not be practical because you'd have to load subtitles for every video. Maybe it could use a centralised server that stores the results and only fetches subtitles (youtube-dl seems to have that option: https://superuser.com/questions/927523/how-to-download-only-subtitles-of-videos-using-youtube-dl)? And if subtitles were indexed like this, maybe search results could even be searched? Also it would be nice if it was open-source so other people could help with development but even if it's not this still looks really useful.Thank you
