More About TimeTags for YouTube

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
- [/] edit the description of active tag
- [d] edit the description of active tag (for new YouTube design)
- [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.
