Filler Tangent is not a catch-all for content you're not interested in.

This page is currently a work in progress - more details to come - If you have a contribution to make, please discuss it in #new-category-discussion on discord or matrix


This is for tangential scenes added only for filler or humor that are not required to understand the main content of the video.

This includes:

  • Timelapses / B-roll
  • Fake Sponsors
  • Irrelevant/ tangential content
    • Content creator being distracted by something unrelated to the video
    • Unrelated highlight clips that don't provide any context, are not elaborated on and don't fit into preview
