YouTube is an American online video-sharing platform. YouTube operates as one of Google’s subsidiaries. YouTube is a video search engine. It is used to watch music videos, comedy shows, recipes, hacks, tricks, online study material and more. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. You can learn many skills that you want to learn on YouTube.
Users watch YouTube normally in two ways. The first is that if YouTube’s video is about entertainment then they watch the full video. The second is that if the video is about a tutorial then users usually just fast-forward or skip through it to get to the parts that matter. Generally for long videos, creators add timestamps in the video description that make it easier for users to navigate to a specific part of the video. Users can find timestamps in the description If it is added by the Creator. For those who don’t know about timestamp, We will explain a little bit about this. ” Timestamp o on a video takes viewers directly to the point where the creator wants them to watch. For e.g., if a video has major three parts which are new features, how it works, and problems/ suggestions for the future. So the creator can give a particular time for each part in the description box so that users can directly go to that part by clicking on its time.
YouTube Launched a new feature called Chapters which will make it easier to navigate within a video. This feature completely depends on the hyperlinked timestamps that are made available in the video description. This feature will work only when the creator uses 0:00 timestamp in the description as shown in the image above. YouTube keeps on bringing user-friendly updates from time to time. Chapter is also a user-friendly feature that creators can use to enhance the experience of their subscribers. This feature is very useful for tutorial videos and long compilation-type videos because the user can go to a particular part of the video as per his requirement.
As you can see from the following screenshot of a YouTube video given below. In the following video, the creator used YouTube’s latest feature to enhance the experience of their subscribers. In this video, you can see that the entire video is divided into several parts and each part is having its name. So all you have to do is move your cursor over that part and you will get information about that part of the video.
After that just click on that part which you want to view. This feature of YouTube will save a lot of time for the user and the user can get the thing that he wants.
