what is sceneclip?
Sceneclip is a tool for making short clips of videos and sharing them online. Anyone can upload videos (or import from Youtube and other services) and make GIF-style scenes. Sceneclip uses subtitles to make it easy to find your favorite scenes and add captions to your clips.

Upload a video file by clicking the "upload" button. You can select a video file to upload or enter a url to download from Youtube and other services.
You can also include an optional video title and include any additional subtitle files to include with the video. If you video includes embedded subtitle files, these will automatically be extracted and used with your video. Currently, most common video formats are supported, with support SRT and SUB subtitle formats.
If you have multiple videos, you can use the batch uploader. Select multiple video files from your computer. If you have subtitle files, you can include these in your batch as well. Subtitle files matching video file names will automatically be included with their videos (i.e. foo.mp4 will match with foo.srt).
When viewing a video's page, you'll see previews of scenes from the video. If the video includes subtitles, each line will be included in these scenes. You can select different subtitles by clicking "options" and selecting from the subtitles dropdown. You can upload a new subtitles file by clicking the "+ subtitles" button. You can jump to any time in the video using the time controls and search the scenes by entering text in the search box.
Add a scene to your clip by clicking "add to clip." Selecting two scenes will automatically select any scenes in between. You can add/edit a top and bottom caption which will appear in your clip. You can modify the duration of each scene by changing the start and stop times.
When you've selected scenes for your clip, click "make clip". Depending on the length of your clip, it may take several minutes to process. When finished, the clip page will refresh. Each clip includes webm video and gif versions that can be downloaded and shared.
using the editor
The clip editor can be used to make clips including multiple, unconnected scenes from multiple videos. While browsing videos, you can add a scene to your editor by clicking "copy to editor." Open the editor at any time by clicking "editor."
You can add scenes to the editor by clicking "+ segment." Select a video by typing into the segment's video dropdown. You can then select a subtitle file, or enter your own captions. You can set the start and end time for the scene using the time controls. You can change the order of segments by dragging each scene frame. Clicking "make clip" will generate a clip from your current editor settings.
When viewing a clip, you can click "edit" to open an editor of the clip and modify it.
Sceneclip is very much an alpha-stage prototype. The project is the result of a few weekends worth of coding. Any and all feedback, suggestions, issues, and bug reports are welcome. Please send them to email@example.com.
At this point, sceneclip supports a very basic developer API for uploading videos, subtitles, and generating clips. If you would like to use the API, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Identification of the copyrighted work or works claimed to have been infringed.
- Identification of the material on our servers that is claimed to be infringing and that is to be removed, including the URL or other information to enable us to locate the material.
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you as copyright owner, or by your agent, or by law.
- A statement that the information in your notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the owner (or authorized to act on behalf of the owner) of the exclusive copyright right that is allegedly being infringed.
