YouTube Time Machine for Book Research

The next time you need to research a book or a new writing project, you should use the YouTube Time Machine to explore the time period in your work.

The online tool will let you find videos that range from 1860 until the present, traveling back in time with over 10,000 videos discovered through YouTube’s vast archive. You can also email the founders (hello [at] yttm [dot] tv) a video to show how you used the tool.

AppNewser has more about the app version of the online tool: “the app lets you choose a year and play videos from that time period. It is a great way to find television commercial, sports videos or music videos from your childhood.”
