Giving you two-fold YouTube™ searching powers, Y2Cake presents to you an unprecedented amount of control over YouTube™. Really.
Quickly search for videos without leaving the current site you're on; while you're at it, also search for specific parts of a video à la fulltext-search (shout out to http://github.com/olivernn's lunr.js)
Start searching for YouTube™ videos with "ctrl-shift-f". Once you've made a selection, you can use Y2Cake once again to search within that video!
For videos that you can search through, it becomes practically effortless to jump to the parts that you want to hear and watch!
In principle, Y2Cake can help you weed out videos that are title/tagged as one thing, while its content says another.
Hope you enjoy!
'alt-shift-f' starts the extension
'alt-s' toggles the Subtitle option
'alt-d' toggles the Duration option
'tab' will iterate over the list of results
'enter' will select your choice
Here's a brief explanation to the motivation behind Y2Cake. In trying out some of the more popular YouTube™ (none of them official) extensons, I've noticed that they all lacked some of the most basic functional features:
"instasearch" (what we commonly know as search suggestions) as well as some of the basic filters currently available on youtube.com
The "unprecedented" amount of control I mentioned earlier is not a vacuous statement. On videos with captions, you can jump to virtually any place in that video where words are being spoken.
I hope you find this useful; if you do or don't, please tell me why in the reviews, or get a hold of me via twitter (@rodricios) or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) :)
*note: in-video searching relies on user or auto-generated captions.
