Skip Silence browser plug-in

#1 Post by webfork » Sun Sep 20, 2020 4:18 pm

So this is currently only a Chrome plugin, but it could move over to Firefox in the future as well.

A huge number of authoring and edit tools include a silence detection function, but this is the first I've seen on the player side. This is a really cool idea that I can see a LOT of uses for:
  • Informal recordings or podcasts or things that were broadcast live
  • Audiobooks that were converted from tape, where there are generally long bits of silence at the end of every side
  • Corporate meeting recordings where there's usually a delay at the beginning, if someone steps away, or if there's a technical issue (such as disconnection)
Does anyone know of something not specific to Chrome or HTML5 video? Are there other tools that will detect and skip silence in audio/video?
