  • Copy the URL of an online video and paste it in The Mad Video. Any video from YouTube will work. The Mad Video will analyze the video and break it into scenes for easy tagging.
  •  To tag anything you want, you only need to drop the kind of tag you want (people, place, product, etc) onto the video's timeline, then enter in text, images, external links, maps, and more.
  • Embedded on your site, or shared on a social network, your interactive video will show your tags wherever you place it. You can even share individual tags so viewers go right to that moment in your video!
