How do video comments work on Throttle?
Comments on videos are time based. That means each comment that is made on a Throttle video is associated with a specific time stamp in the video. When that moment occurs in the video, the corresponding comments will be highlighted in the comment section. If you click on a comment, you will jump to the time-stamped moment in the video that comment is referring to.
Where do comments on Throttle come from?
Throttle comments are powered by a patented AI. Any time some one makes mention of a Throttle video on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, YouTube, or Throttle TV, the AI adds what was said to the comment section of the video it is referring to. This means the comment section of Throttle’s videos capture what people are saying about our videos from everywhere on the web!
How do I create a time-stamped comment on a Throttle video?
To create your own comment on a Throttle video, simply open up a video and select the light bulb icon tab from the upper right hand side of the screen. Then select the comment section from the header tabs in the slide out menu. Play the video. When the moment in the video you would like to comment on occurs, type your comment in the bottom right text box where it says, “Add comment” and then press enter. Your comment will now appear in the comment section with a time stamped based on when you pressed enter.
How do I create a GIF out of a Throttle video and then share it?
Creating your own GIF of a scene in a Throttle video is easy. Open up a video and play it! When the scene you would like to GIF starts, select the GIF text icon at the bottom right of the screen. This will pop up the GIF creator, which allows you to set the start time and end time of your GIF so it is the exact part of the video you want to capture. You also have the option to add text to the GIF. Once you create your masterpiece, you have the option to share the GIF with your friends on social media.
How does search work on Throttle?
On Throttle you can search for videos by their titles, or you can search for specific scenes based on what people have said about them. In the search bar, located at the upper right side of the site, enter in a search term. You are then shown results of both video titles with your search term in them, as well as scenes where people’s comments mentioned your search term. You can also specify if you would like to only search by video or by scene. So if you want a video about popping wheelies you can find it, or if you want the specific scene where someone goes up on one wheel, you can find that too.
