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.

Start on feed, then tap on the live video which continues autoplaying video and plays audio, then note below that are “Notable parts of video” that are made automatically based on interactions such as comments, hearts, replays, comments by the person making the live video, and more.

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.

Proposed idea:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
