Create Sections of YouTube Videos With TubeChop

I recently discovered TubeChop -- an online app that allows you to enter the url of any YouTube video and splice it into a smaller piece that then filters thru the TubeChop site for you to link to or embed.

By using this site, you will no longer have to pass along email links to 60 minute videos and recommend the recipient check out 6:48; 25:19 & 48:05. You can quickly splice the video and pull the sections you want to pass along.

For example, one of my favorite parts of Steve Jobs' 2005 Commencement Address at Stanford is when he talked about how dropping out of college helped the world get better typography on their personal computers. The section of the speech is about how you can't connect the dots of your life looking forward, but only by looking back. "You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.... believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path."

The full speech is over 15 minutes, by using TubeChop, I've been able to splice out the three minute section of Jobs' speech referenced above. You can watch it here, or via the embedded clip below.

You can use the scene skipping feature to mark the important points for visitors to jump back and forth.
