  • The button Add to Playlist opens a list of your available custom playlists. Check the box to add the video to the list.

Similar Videos#

Tube Archivist will show up to six similar videos in a grid. Similarity is detected from the video title and the video tags. This naturally will show some videos from the same channel, but can also return videos about the same topic from other channels.

When playing a video from the similar section with the inline player, the current video will get replaced, refresh the page to reset that or click on the video title to avoid that behavior.


If activated on the settings page, this will show the indexed comments. Reveal the threads by clicking the + Replies button. Comments with a heart symbol are favorited by the uploader, comments by the uploader are highlighted in a different color.
