Sometimes, while watching videos on websites like YouTube, Hulu and Vimeo, we need to stop the video because we’re short on time or might have to do something else. Situations like these can be really annoying, especially when you don’t know where you left off. Pause For Later is a Chrome extension that allows you to pause videos and save them for watching later, when you have more time at hand. After installing the extension, click the button in the toolbar to pause and save videos. Moreover, videos are saved along with the Time Remaining, Paused and Position information. You may watch videos right from where you left off.
When listening to music or watching videos on YouTube, Vimeo, or Hulu etc, click the button in the toolbar to pause videos and resume later when you have enough time.
The videos will be saved to the pauseforlater.com website. This page displays three basic categories, All, New and Watched. Each video comes with an Action button, which allows you to access multiple options for the video, such as Watch Now, Mark as Watched, Copy Short link, Watch From Beginning , Delete and more.
The extension is quite impressive and it trumps YouTube’s native watch it later feature since it also records how much of a video you’ve watched. Additionally, it provides a single place for consolidating videos from different services to watch later. Instead of having to log in to different accounts for each website, you can view them all in a single place.
The extension is one of those that are supported by a service and while the options currently available are reasonable enough for a good video viewing experience, they can perhaps be developed further. Users can be given the option to create folders to organize the videos they’ve set aside for watching later and perhaps a filter for videos from a particular service will help make searching easier. While at present the extension is well built, it no doubt can be improved over the long run and made to cater to more users.
Pause For Later is a pretty slick extension that eases the way you watch videos and gives you a better overall experience. With it, you will never lose track of videos and will be able to watch them from right where you left off. Install the extension from the link below and give it a try!
