This video plugin essentially enables impatient media consumers to skip to the part of the video that is most relevant to them. ClipMine lets viewers search for clips by annotating videos online and offering a text outline for people to peruse, so they can skip to the good parts.

ClipMine hopes the platform will eventually be crowdsourced, containing annotations that other viewers submit. Currently the database consists of notes written by their editorial staff, with help from an algorithm.

The video plugin allows for more meaningful sharing opportunities, interactive embedded content and a smart tagging feature (where the algorithm suggests tags for you). Overall, this provides a more personalized viewing experience, improved engagement with viewers and actionable analytics.
