EmbedPlus is a website that takes watching YouTube videos to the next level.  Using the EmbedPlus software, when you embed a video you have several options that you can include to make watching that video online interactive.  Here are some of the features that you can add:

- Scene Skipping - Like DVD chapter buttons, use the wizard to mark notable parts like game highlights, changing performers, and lecture sections.
- Movable Zoom - Dynamically magnifies the area you point over. Use it to get a close look at objects, writing, and things like moving athletes.
- Slow Motion On-Demand - Instantly watch videos at a slower rate to more clearly see what happens.
- Real-time Reflections -Add a discussion to your video
- Third Party Annotations - You can add your own annotations to the video

Using EmbedPlus is as easy as copying and pasting a URL from YouTube.  From there choose your size, Start time, and Scene Markers.  You then choose your annotations and then are provided the code and URL.  See a sample video below.
