Commenting on a video file is very easy and similar to that of an image. You can pause a video and add a comment on any frame by clicking on the annotation icons (comment icon or rectangle icon) at the top left. Even if the video is playing, clicking on one of the two annotations pauses the video, allowing you to add your comment.
Comments get added in the right panel with the reviewer name, comment time and the user’s colour code. Dots get added to the timeline above the video with the reviewer’s colour code so you know exactly where the comments are added and by whom. Clicking on the dots jumps straight to the commented frame. You can even click on the comment in the right panel to jump to the frame.
All video controls are on the top right of the screen (above the comments panel)
