What is ReClipped?
ReClipped helps students take timestamped notes on videos, helps coaches and trainers analyse game videos, and helps teams discuss and share important parts from videos privately. Using ReClipped you can annotate videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox and AWS. Now you can also annotate locally stored Audio and Video files
What are video annotations?
Video annotations are your notes on particular segment of a video. These notes can range from a simple bookmark title to an elaborate backstory about the segment. Typically, annotations are created by users, to summarise the video segment in their own words.
How to create video annotations?
Video annotations can be created on the host platform as well as on ReClipped platform.
Creating video annotations using the chrome plugin
To create annotations directly on the host platform, you need to install ReClipped Chrome browser plugin. Once you install the plugin you can add annotations on pages with videos on all the supported platforms.
Creating video annotations on the Platform, without installing the plugin
To create annotations on ReClipped. After logging in,
- Click on "Add Video" button on the top bar
- Paste the URL of the page video, you would like to annotate (currently, YouTube and Vimeo URLs are supported)
- You can start creating annotations on the subsequent page, using the “Create Snippet” button below the video
- Your annotations, thus created, will be visible on the origin page also, if you install the plugin
What are Snippets?
Snippets are segments clipped from videos that can be saved into Boards and shared on any Platform that supports link sharing such as Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp etc.
When you create a Snippet, the video is paused and focus is shifted to the note. After writing the note, you can edit the start and end times of the Snippet and choose to save it to any of your Boards or save it to "Only Me" to keep it as uncategorised private note
Snippets are of 30 seconds duration by default, starting 25 seconds before the current timestamp and ending 5 seconds after the timestamp. You can change this default to 5 or 15 seconds from the duration presets dropdown before saving the Snippet.
To view all Annotations on a video, click on the "Watch Full" button
What are Summary Notes?
A Summary Note is a special annotation that allows for quick timestamped note-taking on videos. Everytime you click on the Pencil icon, the note captures the current timestamp of the video. You can write your notes next to the timestamp. While viewing the video, you can click on these timestamps to quickly navigate to the point in the video that is refered by your note
You can have only 1 Summary Note per video
What are Highlights?
Highlights allow you to create markers in the video without getting distracted. When you click on the Highlighter icon, a note with the current timestamp of the video is saved privately to "Only Me". Highlights are of 10 seconds duration by default.
Best way to use Highlights is to use them as placeholders for important moments in the video. Review them later, edit timestamps and save to appropriate Board

Collect your Annotations in Boards
Boards are where you save your Annotations - Snippets, Summary Notes and Highlights. Use Boards just to categorise annotations or invite others to join your Board to collaborate on a topic
Boards can be private or public
If you do not want others to see your collection, keep the board “Private”. If you would like to share your collection with the outside world, make the board “Public”. You can always toggle this setting by editing the board settings.
Add members to your public or private boards
Add members to your board and start saving notes together. Shared boards are best for group study, for providing feedback and for collaborating on shared interests.
Members can be added to both private and public boards.
Search public annotations
Use ReClipped Search on the topbar on Snippets and the Feed page to search from all public annotations on ReClipped. Search not only gives you relevant videos, but also provides you the specific segment that matched your query.
