Have you ever experienced scrubbing the video to get an exact part or maybe even search on the comment section for the timestamps? Well, with YouTube’s new launch of Video Chapters, you no longer have to worry about that anymore.
This feature is accessible on Desktop, Androids, and iOs. These Video Chapters will be automatically enabled as a line of timestamps and titles when the creator added chapter information to his video’s description. To start the feature, you have to make sure that the first timestamp listed in your video description starts at 0:00, and that your video has at least three timestamps or chapters, with each chapter being 10 seconds or longer.
If ever you want to disable video chapters on any of your content, you have to adjust the first timestamp in your video description to be something other than 0:00 for example, just change it to be “0:01.”
YouTube was spotted testing and experimenting with the Video Chapters back in April, but today the feature will be live for all users. And YouTube reportedly received positive feedback from the experiment — for example, people enjoyed having songs broken into chapters and being able to jump to a specific part of a video.
