When I saw the Timelinejs library (http://timeline.verite.co/) I was immediately intrigued. I began to brainstorm some ideas that might work well but didn’t find anything in particular that stuck out. Over the weekend I decided to hack something together using the Youtube API.
Enter a Youtube username at @ http://fancanvas.com and ‘Timelinify’ the experience.
Sometimes it’s confusing to figure out what the username of a Youtube account may be. I created a simple bookmarklet to automatically pull the username from a video page and timeline it. To use the bookmarklet, drag the “Youtube Timelinify” link at http://vincentjr.com/bookmarklet/ to your bookmarks, go to a Youtube video, and click the bookmark.
- When using the bookmarklet, it will always bring you to the latest 25 videos of the user (in descending order).
- Does not have robust username searching.
