Isn’t it time for a Youtube annotator? I’m quite surprised this isn’t a thing yet.
Some ideas of what it could comprise:
- Ability to get timestamps
- Ability to retrieve transcript/captions around the stopped frame
- Quote comments
- Grab description of the video
Not sure if this achieved all you described, but I’ve seen folks exporting YouTube highlights using Memex into Obsidian. Here is an example.
So there’s YiNote which does 1 & 4 and exports to markdown.
h/t @tallguyjenks and here’s His video showing it.
i stopped using that shortly after the video, the media extended plugin is much better for just that
