“Skip Silence” is a browser extension that allows you to autmatically skip parts of a video that are silent.
It is highly inspired by CaryKH’s automatic on-the-fly video editing tool (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQ8orIurGxw).
The extension works with most websites that use a HTML5 video or audio element to play, this includes YouTube and Instagram.
