Idea: When viewing a live stream, show videos under that autoplay showing earlier parts of video where reactions/likes/hearts and comments were posted (#108)
Purpose is to quickly show what parts of a video people thought were interesting, and you can keep watching from that point if you want. Also, these videos appear under live streams after they finished broadcasting as well.
Facebook & YouTube today:
- Facebook lets you know about when someone shares a video live, then you can tap to view and watch live, or watch a live video recorded earlier.
- As with any given video, you can drag on a recorded video timeline to play any particular part of a video.
- With Facebook Live and Periscope playback, you can see when reactions or comments were posted during the time of the live video.
- Start on the feed and see there is a live video. Tap to view the live video, and note under that shows “Notable parts of video” starting with “When # hearts were shared” at 1 minute 3 seconds which starts autoplaying from that point when the video is in focus.
- Scroll to see more of the autoplaying videos from where there was activity, including comments, replies by the person making the live video, and when a part of the video was replayed a lot.
- Opportunity is to help people discover parts of a live video that may be interesting.
- Factors that can be used to suggest parts of videos to check out include number of reactions/hearts, shares, comments, replies by the person doing the live video, parts of the video replayed, specific parts of the video shared to other people, and more.
- A reason to not do this is if these parts of the video are uninteresting, or if viewing from the beginning is necessary for context.
