Video Chapters feature make it easy to skip to precisely where you want to go in a video, like a book.
The bar used to show video progress will have little black breaks in it to indicate where each chapter ends and a new one begins. When you scrub over a section with your mouse, you’ll then see the title of the chapter it’s in.
For music content, Video Chapters can be used for Full Album for instance or acoustic sessions where users can navigate through the different songs.

How to turn on video chapters
To turn on chapters for your video, it is pretty easy:
- Sign in to YouTube.
- Go to the video you want to edit.
- Select EDIT VIDEO under the video.
- In the “Description” box of the “Add details” page, add a list of timestamps and titles.
To opt into video chapters, make sure that the first timestamp you list starts with 00:00. Your video should have at least three timestamps listed in ascending order. The minimum length for video chapters is 10 seconds.
