January 20 2017 by Eric Cohn

SnapStream makes it easy to quickly grab a segment from live or recorded TV.

SnapStream Advanced: Timecoded Tags

November 17 2016 by Eric Cohn

Timecoded tags reference specific moments during a recording. Using timecoded tags, you can identify and tag visual cues, non-verbal content and other important information that might not show up in the closed captioning or program guide data of your recording. Timecoded tags can be helpful in identifying and reviewing similar moments from different recordings.

Need to find each time a character makes a silly face? A time-coded tag called "silly face" would help you catalog and search on these specific moments in your library. It's simple to create and search for timecoded tags in SnapStream. Find out how below:

1. To create a time-coded tag, right-click (Ctrl+Click on a Mac) in the playback bar or click the clip0060.jpg button. You will be prompted to select a name for the tag or choose a pre-existing playlist. The time-coded tag will show as a blue line on your playback bar. To create a timecoded range tag, set a clip start and end point before clicking the "Timecoded Tag" button

2. Choose an existing tag from the dropdown menu or type a new tag. Click “Add” to finalize the tagging.

4. Tags are indexed by SnapStream. Timecoded tags will appear in all search results organically, but you can also tailor your search to tagged terms only by using the search filter “TAG:”
