Video game players can get stuck at certain levels of gameplay. Current techniques to make progress through a game, e.g., looking up articles or how-to videos, asking friends for tips, etc., are time-consuming and interrupt game flow. This disclosure describes techniques that, with user permission, detect when a game player is stuck at a certain level in gameplay. Based on user-permitted analysis of prior gameplay streams from other game players, strategies to advance in the game are automatically identified, e.g., video snippets that illustrate the specific actions that the player needs to perform. Such strategies are then presented to the game player, assisting the player in completing the level.
