Video Chapters

Video Chapters

Feature availability:
  1. Available for all team and individual plans
  2. Available for all users
Video chapters help you break up a video into multiple sections, so viewers can see what's covered in the video, and quickly jump to the topic they're interested in.

You can enter the list of timestamps along with the title in the video description to add video chapters.

Note: A user must have Edit permission or higher to add video chapters for a video.

Add video chapters

  1. Select a video file.
  2. Click the Details  icon in the right pane to access the Details tab.

  3. Click Add description and chapters and enter the list of timestamps along with the titles.

               Video chapter requirements:
    1. The first timestamp must start at 00:00
    2. Your video must contain at least 3 chapters listed in ascending order
    3. The minimum time interval between each chapter should be 10 seconds
    4. The file description should not exceed 2000 characters
    5. The timestamp and title must be separated by a hyphen (-) with or without a space. (Example: 00:00 - Chapter 1 or 00:00-Chapter 1)

      Note: Video chapters will only be added to your video if your description meets all the above-mentioned requirements.

  4. Click Save.

  1. Once video chapters are added, the video timeline will be segmented as shown in the above image. When you scrub or skip through the video timeline, you can view each chapter along with the title.
  2. Video chapters will be supported in preview mode and full-screen mode.
  3. Video chapters will be supported for both internal users (within the organization) and external users (anyone on the internet), including views via embed codes and external share links.
  4. Currently, the video chapters are not supported in WorkDrive mobile apps.
