Not as many as some of the other people in here but mine's not bad. Haven't submitted anything in like a year too...
It appears as though my stats are off a bit. I mostly watch YouTube on mobile and it's reporting more submitted segments (same time saved) but strangely more personal segments skipped on mobile for less time I've personally saved. It's using the same SB account thing so I douno whats up with that. Brings me to the same leaderboard even so who knows

I wish you could contribute to sponsor block while only viewing from free tube

Now we just need people to stop abusing the "highlight/get to the point" option.

Its great for "listen to my whole life story before I tell you how to fix this super obscure computer problem"

Not so great for "watch me build this cool table" skips to the final result.

I disagree? It skips to the highlight. If I came here to see the cool table, I wanna see the cool table, not the 15 minutes beforehand of the guy talking about tableology and his quest to find the optimal oak polish. Highlights don't skip automatically by default, so it harms nothing having it there for videos you personally don't want to use it on; if I'm in the mood to see a longform video, I will, and if I just want to see the cool thing displayed in the thumbnail, I will.

I also kind of enjoy the memey ones, like how most uploads of the beatmania song Second Heaven have the infamous SOMEBODY SCREAM tagged as a highlight. It's a fun little moment of "someone else was here before me for the same thing, and they left a trace", kinda like a dark souls message.

Maybe you might argue that should be a different category? But personally I think your definition of highlight is rather narrow

Gumus ,

You know you can configure to not autoskip those segments, right? You can always skip manually, if it's that kind of video.

helpImTrappedOnline ,

I know, I'm just being picky. Someone likes to skip right to the end for a channel I watch every video, where the 'journey' is the intresting part.

Well now have a new service to use!

I'm so tired of Nordvpn and raid.

Like if you're playing an indie game that sponsored the video, that is sick.

I in no way wanna hear about man scaped while watching a Pokémon video.

Check out DeArrow. Made by same person to crowd source non-click bait titles and thumbnails (using a screen shot from the video).

"You won't belive this new gadget can do this" -> "review of (product name)"

"I ate 100 hotdogs in a day!" -> "Mr. Beast knock-off wonders the streets and eats 3 hotdogs at a few street shops."

Thank you all for your service! Practically every video I watch on YT nowadays has segments already completed

Imagine being the one creating the segment for a Mr Beast video. Instantly saved some years.

The hero of the people, puts my 122h to shame

Only 26 segments though, lol

dinckelman ,

Depends on what and when you watch. I have about double saved time at 1/3 of the submission count, so technically that makes you more valuable for an average viewer. Good job nonetheless

Fint0034 OP ,
@Fint0034@lemmy.ml avatar

sometimes the video is already segmented a day after uploaded, so it's still impressive

KairuByte ,
@KairuByte@lemmy.dbzer0.com avatar

Yeah popular uploaders are segmented minutes after an upload in many cases. I’ve even seen them completed in under the time it takes to watch at x1 speed.
