Fine tune Youtube Clips with EmbedPlus

If you use Youtube videos, you know that sometimes you only really want to show certain portions.  Or perhaps you want to crop, or zoom in, or quickly play back a section. EmbedPlus adds these features and more. (See some of the features below) This site could be a new "teachers' friend"!

Scene Skipping
Like DVD chapter buttons, click these to skip to marked times.

Cut / Splice / Chop only the particularly interesting part of a video to show during playback. 

 Movable Zoom
Added accessibility. Dynamically magnifies the area you point over. Use it to get a close look at objects, writing, and things like moving athletes. 

Timed Annotations
Add your own timed annotations to any video. Use it to display titles, captions, scene labels, and side comments during playback.

Slo-Mo On-Demand
Instantly watch videos at a slower rate to more clearly see what happens. Use it for videos with sports highlights, demos, tricks, and raw footage.
