YouTube Gets Instant Timeline Previews

YouTube might be the most popular video site on the internet, but its video player can still learn from others; and at last it's about to receive a much welcomed update that will make jumping into any section of a video much easier. Soon you'll be able to see a small image preview as you move your mouse over the timeline.

This way, you won't have to click around blindly, hoping to get to the right spot and wasting valuable bandwidth. You'll be able to see if that's what you want...

Technically, YouTube generates a 10x10 storyboard collage of 100 images of the video, making it really efficient to be able to show those timeline previews - as you can see in the image above.

Now we just have to wait for this to go live for every one of us and for the already uploaded videos.
