If you have any experience estimating crowd size, about how many people do you think are in this march?

Hm, I checked and it worked for me in an incognito browser.

Worked on my laptop, s'pose it might just be a mobile thing.

This one is hard to estimate by sight. I'd get a rough count of how many pass by a point (could be the edge of the frame) in 10sec and multiply by, oh, 27 (4.5min ÷ 10sec). It looks like it thins out a bit by the end, but not consistently, so rounding down to hundreds should get you close enough for horseshoes.

I can see it on iPhone/Chrome. It’s long!

I see a few hundred people per 10 seconds of video, but some/most of the video is sped up so make of that what you will.
