YouTube Chapters


Meet Evan, an avid user of YouTube.


He wants to watch long videos without having to sit through all of them.


With Chapters, Evan can get a good understanding of what the video is about


by skipping to essential parts of the video with labeled time stamps


in a way that is unobtrusive and informative.

Currently, Youtubers are forced to make their own timestamps for videos. This is especially necessary for long videos. Viewers do not have either the patience or time to watch a long video which forces them to skim through it. Youtubers have tried implementing their own timestamps in their video for their viewers, but they end up being obtrusive to the viewing experience and uninformative.
