From Tubefilter: Vimeo Launches Video Review Tools, Complete With Time-Stamped Edits. “For those of us who use Google Docs to review, critique, and comment on our colleagues’ drafts, the Video Review interface looks rather familiar. Creators can share their work with others before presenting it to the public, and their editors — whether amateur or professional — can insert suggestions that pop up at the exact time-stamp when they are relevant. As with Google Docs, the original video owner can interact with these comments by replying to them or dismissing them.”
