How to make timecodes in YouTube videos: step-by-step instructions.

Adding timecodes to YouTube videos greatly improves the user experience by allowing viewers to easily find the right moments in a video. Follow this step-by-step guide to highlight the meaningful parts of your video and automatically break it down into episodes.

Step 1️⃣: Upload or edit video

Upload a new video to YouTube or start editing an existing one in Creator Studio.

Step 2️⃣: Specifying timestamps

On the Video Details page, in the Description field, provide timestamps and episode titles. Pay attention to the time format - enter it separated by a colon, for example, 00:00.

- The first episode should start at 00:00.
- The minimum episode length is 10 seconds.
- Add at least three episodes.

List them in the order they appear in the video and don't forget to save your changes.

Automatic episode breakdown

YouTube also offers automatic video episode breakdown. If this option is not disabled, it applies to all videos by default. Here's how it works:

Step 1️⃣: Login to the Creative Studio

Sign in to YouTube Studio and select Content from the menu on the left.

Step 2️⃣: Select Video

Select the video you want to enable automatic splitting for and select Edit at the top.

Step 3️⃣: Enable automatic breakdown

In the menu that appears, click “Automatic episode breakdown” and set the option to “Enable” or “Disable”.

This procedure can be performed for several videos at once, which significantly saves time.

Why use timecodes and automatic breakdown?

1. Improve viewer experience: Timecodes allow viewers to easily find the points they are interested in, increasing satisfaction with the content.
2. Increase Watch Time: When viewers can quickly jump to the desired part of a video, they are more likely to watch your content longer.
3. Increased search visibility: Videos with timecodes and sequences can rank better in YouTube and Google search results.

Use these features to make your content more accessible and engaging for viewers!
