=== How to use ===
1. Install the extension
2. Go to a video/stream showing a game of Magic (e.g. https://youtu.be/cKPaR2uSpPk?t=222)
3. Click on the extension icon in the top right corner of the browser
4. Select the appropriate pool of cards for the game (best guess will be selected by default), then click on "Start MagicCardZoom"
5. Hover your mouse over any card in the video to get a high definition visual of the card (works best when hovering over the card's art)
To stop running the extension, click on the extension icon, then click on "Stop MagicCardZoom". The extension will also stop when closing the tab or navigating to a new page.
=== Limitations ===
Identification of the correct card depends on how recognisable the card's artwork is, therefore strong light reflection or obstructions (e.g. by dice or other cards) will cause some cards to not be identified.
Also keep in mind that the number of cards in the pool has a direct impact on the accuracy of the detection, therefore the extension will work better on smaller formats such as Standard or Pioneer as opposed to larger formats such as Modern, Vintage or Commander.
