Adding to Your Dataset

A common issue we run into for computer vision projects, and especially those for which we're creating models that will run against video, or high-frame rate video, is finding data to augment our existing dataset ... or getting a dataset to start with at all!

This is where Roboflow's YouTube video import feature comes in. All you have to do is copy and paste the link for the YouTube video into your Roboflow project's Upload page, select the frames per second to sample the video, wait for the frames to be processed, and click "Finish Upload!"

Check out the video below to see exactly how it works!
