Add Timestamps to Your YouTube Videos #recordings #youtube

Alan Katsura, Moderator, CA Diablo Valley Chapter

Help your viewers. With many of our chapter meeting recordings running about 90 minutes, that takes a huge chunk of time out of a person's day. If you can break up your meeting into sections, viewers can see the video's portion that interests them. See the example below. Our chapter website may not interest you, but the HLAA website might. And, maybe you are not interested in the Q&A session. You have 15 minutes of video to view. Click on the timestamp, and the video player starts at that point. In the Video Details section for a particular video in YouTube Studio, it is simple to place the timestamps in the Description section as shown. Use the time format h:mm:ss. To access the Video Details section, from your Channel Content page, hover over the video and click on the pencil icon (details.)
