You may have noticed that the new and improved video player launched last week. What you may not having noticed is the amazing transcript feature. I've used it twice already so I wanted to make sure everyone was aware of it.
The way it works is that sometime in the wee hours of the night, the closed captioning from the TV is imported to the player and matched to the time codes. At that point, the transcript button the clip will be clickable. Later, when the better transcript is finished, that replaces the closed captioning transcript.
More magic after the jump
ADDING: And I hope someone at msnbc.com sent an angry note to the New York Times for this article because surely we deserve at least a mention.
