    Weird question.

    With all these Teams/Zooms whatnots happening across the corporate world, I’ve had the displeasure of having to take these stupid long videos and regurgitating them for internal use.

    If I sound annoyed, I am.

    These projects are hours of boring chatter. So hope you get me.

    Is there a cloud service that will suck these things in and have an option to create in/out points as video links?

    This way I don’t have to struggle through this hell 🙂

    I know on YouTube you can specify marker points but I would like something where you post a link and it will only playback the portion you desire.

    Does this sound crazy?

    Add VTT crap and you can see where my head explodes.

    Taking a two-hour meeting and having to create an SRT so I can edit it in an NLE is just plain stupid.

    Excuse my whining 🙂

    Blame it on the pandemic.

    Or the Bossanova….

    I get long, boring stuff to re-edit a lot. For captioning, I post it unlisted on a youtube channel, and let YouTube auto-caption it for me for free. I still have to add capitalizations and some punctuation, but it’s way less work than hand-typing it all, and the price is right.

    There is image posting code, used in internet forums, that will create links specifying a play range within a longer video. I don’t have an example to show you, sorry. But I see them used a lot.

    This part’s not what you asked for, but my two cents is, I try like heck to improve raw screen recordings like these, any way I can. I owe it to the viewers. So if I can add stylistic touches, supporting graphics, or tighten up a sequence with transparent editing, I will.

    One other thing I do as a viewer, and I can’t be the only one, is I almost always play back this kind of stuff in faster-than-real-time mode, on YouTube. We can hear and understand speech that’s faster than realtime, and for me, it reduces the boredom of following. I jump back to normal speed for things that are of particular interest, but I think many people just watch stuff in scrolling speeds all the time these days, we’re just more used to a faster pace of communication and information assimilation. If you watch TV show editing from two decades ago, you marvel at how darned slow everything is presented, relative to modern productions.

    Oooh, thanks for the reply.

    So many things to consider but def will look into that play range link you mentioned.

    I wonder if frame io would take that on?

    As far as making these pretty, it’s not required, heck I have to fight to add title cards and lower thirds… Heck, don’t even mention helping them with explainer graphics 😛

    I guess they are doing me a favor by avoiding that.
