Phrase from movies/tv?
June 9, 2021 3:23 PM   Subscribe

I saw this recently: a website that given some text as input would play parts of movies / tv shows that said those words for you. I can't remember where I saw it... metafilter? some random site in my RSS reader? Anyway, I'd like to find it again.

It is NOT: or

No, but that one is cool. The tool I'm looking for would make a custom movie by splicing together just the clips saying the specific word you entered from whatever media it found them in. So I could enter an arbitrary phrase and get a custom video. These just let me search for known phrases in movies.

Rereading the question I don't think I made that clear. :(

Youglish pulls all youtube videos containing a given word or phrase and lets you move from one to another but you have to click to move to the next.

Out of curiosity, why not It seems to be the direct answer to what you're asking.

metabaroque, I think OP is looking for a tool that will build a sequence of words that may or may not have existed before in a movie. So I could type, “Tequila murdered Ted’s father” and it would pull a very short clip from four different movies and stitch them together.

Having said that, I tried searching and have so far come up empty, but this seems really cool so I’ll keep looking.

Upon failing to preview, MUBI Remix does appear to do this.

vixt, a phone app, seems to be the closest. There was a site (app?) called clipdis that did this but does not appear to be online anymore
