Most videos on the Web are just not worth seeing in full – or at least this is how the founders of Vibby want you to see things.

Available for free, Vibby is a lightweight Web-based video editing tool that lets you easily select the most outstanding moments from any video and quickly edit out the rest.

“Our vision is to build a platform that enables people to discover and share the moments that matter from any video [as they tend to] get lost in the noise too easily,” says co-founder and CEO Ari Cohen.

The application comes with a simple user-friendly interface that allows users to highlight the most relevant parts from any video in just three steps. All you have to do is select a video, paste the link and Vibby will have you editing in seconds.

The editing tool allows users to set a specific timeframe for each highlight and further offers a commenting feature where people can annotate what makes each important.

Additionally, the application also supports tagging in case users want to direct the attention of a specific person to an individual highlight.

What makes Vibby significantly useful is the function to seamlessly switch back and forth between watching a highlighted version or the full video in case you want more (or less) context.

As of now, the tool is still in beta-testing and only compatible with YouTube videos, but hopefully this changes once Vibby rolls out the official release.
