Most of the people cannot believe if I say it is possible to search within a video for any specific word or phrase. Searching for a word is possible on a web page or PDF file. But doing this for videos is hard to believe for many.

Chrome web store has an extension ‘Invideo for YouTube’ that can make a YouTube video searchable. You just need to add this extension to your browser. You just need to add this extension to your browser.

It is worth to note that the extension works only with YouTube’s new layout. If you are still using the old YouTube layout, you need to get the newer Layout. Click here.

If it can search within a video, you will see a green button saying ‘Open Invideo’. You just need to click on this button.

After you click the button, it adds a search section at the right side of the video player. Here, it shows the transcription and search box to search for a keyword.

Search results highlight the keyword and clicking on the results will start playing that part of the video.

This extension only works with YouTube. So, do not try with any other video sharing website.

This video uses the video subtitles to search the video. YouTube automatically generates the subtitles for many videos and also allow users to add subtitles in many languages. If subtitles are not available, this extension will not offer the option to search.

Final Words

I tested this extension and it works fine. I am still not sure why you will ever want to search for a keyword in a video. But do not forget this if you ever need something like this. This kind search can be helpful in long tutorial videos where you need to search for something specific.

So, do not forget to try this one. If you have anything to ask, you can leave the comment.
