Quick menu


CaptainFact is a collaborative, real-time fact-checking tool for YouTube videos. The website allows people to work together to confirm, refute and contextualize statements made in any video. A browser extension then brings down the community’s sources directly onto the content by injecting them into YouTube’s player (preview).

The project is non-profit (donate through OpenCollective). All the code is libre software.

Openness, factuality and transparancy are our core values.
