The Best Way to take Youtube Notes for Obsidian

Right now, taking notes from Youtube (YT) to Obsidian sucks. To take YT notes, I need to manually copy the timestamp of the video, annotate the video with the correct timestamp, and put all of this in Obsidian. If I don't keep track of the timestamp, coming back to the video requires me to sift through the video to find where my note is referencing.

An Update to the Best Browser Extension for Obsidian

I've done a speal on webclipping in the past, but some feedback has made me realize that simply copying the URL is not webclipping. For Fleeting Notes to truly become a web clipper, it needed a way to capture raw content from the web. Which is why I've added highlights into Fleeting Notes.
