Youtube to Anki, a nice companion to the languagetool.

This tool takes all of five minutes to set up, lets you rip youtube videos directly into anki with no download of the video (just be aware that the youtube video has to allow embedding).


Watch it and read it with the languagetool, review it directly in anki with the original video.


Requires Anki 2.1, I had to retire my Anki 2.0 but I'm quite happy. Having videos directly in the Anki make it so much more enjoyable.

I remember checking out subs2srs. Is this similar?

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Similar but it:


1, is less over head its a chrome tool (not mine) you just export it directly to anki.

2. works on potato computers since it doesn't require you to download, it just embeds the video into your anki cards


Here are some screen caps of it. Music vids

2

3 Kok Bisa (Explainer vid)


It plays the vid when you click the card, the way I use it is to see if I understand it the first time, if not I either use the English subs (if provided and accurate) or look it up in a dict. It plays just the time stamped part that these subtitle files have. My computer isn't very nice since my good one died and I can say that it runs quite well.


Just open the transcript.

Then import it to anki with one click. (Requires the chrome plug in and the anki connect addon).


I aggressively suspend the cards that are too easy or too hard right off the bat, but I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to pair it with the languagetool especially for bigger decks/longer videos.





Edit: It does default to tagalog subs which can be distracting, I talked to the maker of it on Reddit and he isn't sure what the problem is, but I don't mind switching them by hand. I'd be curious as to other users' results.
