Description and Features:

Reactions:

After watching a particular video people all over the world might discuss about it in many places apart from the Youtube comments section. EmbedPlus provides you with options to show viewers the latest reactions over the internet right from your own site. Currently supported sites whose reactions are shown to the user are Google Plus, Twittor, Digg, Reddit and Youtube.

Marking of Chapters: 

Similar to the buttons available on a DVD player to navigate through the various chapters of a video file, the user can simply mark various important events during the playback time and can then simply give references to the scene numbers during discussions. The add-on uses an algorithm called ‘Sweet Spot Marking’ to automatically mark certain portions of the video depending upon the maximum viewer buzz.

Video Loops and Instant Replays:

This lets you replay a particular event after its occurance. You can double click to loop the replay and you can triple click to loop the entire video.

Slow Motion Support:

Isn’t it fun to watch some videos in really slow speed? At times to catch certain quick events in a video like sports highlights, this slow motion feature comes quite handy.

The Movable Zoom Feature: 

EmbedPlus provides an uber cool tool which enables the viewer to zoom into any portion of the video. You can use this tool to get a closer view of scenes, actors and various other objects.

Time Based Annotations and Links: 

Similar to the feature provided by Youtube, EmbedPlus allows you to add timed annotations to your videos to display certain comments or links during playback time.
