We were inspired to build this product because of the election. With this extension, fact checking, in addition to understanding context, has never been easier.
What it does
With FactTube, users will enter a YouTube URL, and then the webapp will display the video on a separate page. As the video plays, topics will pop up below the video. Clicking on a topic will pull up the Wikipedia article for the topic and Bing News about the topic.
How we built it
Check out the built-with tags.
Challenges we ran into
The hardest (and also easiest) part of this product is getting the captions from YouTube, as there is no official way to do this.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The entire thing! We functioned smoothly as a team, communicated well, and built a product that we are all proud of.
