Why Chapters Are Helpful

Video Chapters are a useful feature that allows viewers to find the most important parts of a video quickly. This helps save time and allows them to focus on the content that is most relevant to them.

By breaking up your video into chapters, you can make it easier for your viewers to navigate inside the video and find the most important parts. This feature is similar to what you might find on other major video platforms.

How to Create and Manage Chapters

Chapters are added and managed through timestamps in the video description. To add chapters in a video, the timestamps have to meet the following criteria:

  • The first timestamp in the list should always be 00:00

  • The description should have at least three timestamps listed in ascending order

    • You must have at least 3 chapters

  • A chapter cannot be shorter than 10 seconds

Example Description with Video Chapters

Video Chapters:
00:00 Introduction
01:00 Main Section
05:00 Conclusion

Once you have added at least 3 chapters that are at minimum 10 seconds in length, you'll notice the chapters appear in the video timeline scrubber on the live video.

To edit or remove chapters from a video, you can do so by editing the timestamps in the video description.

Note: Video Chapters will not appear in the back-end preview player. Chapters will only appear on your live catalog.


Video chapters are available across all platforms. Just make sure you have the latest app versions.

How do I control the color of my timestamp in the description?

The color of your timestamp is determined by the primary color you have set for your theme.
