Do not say, but from YouTube, which is constantly polished and brought to mind, has its drawbacks. One think that he is slowly loading videos, others complain that it is a third don’t like playlists. As in any other business, there is always someone who will be constantly dissatisfied. This was not a team of developers and tries to make something new. At this time, this was new was the ability to rewind rollers that will make their viewing even more convenient. To try the upgrade can not only those who use Android devices, but those who chose to view iOS and even the web browser.
If you ever had to scroll through a long video on YouTube, to go to the “good” place, you’ll appreciate the new feature, which was prepared by YouTube. You can now view not only the full video, but the head of it. This function uses the timestamps, which creators used to their videos, allowing viewers to easily navigate to a specific video segment or to view some of the videos.
The function of the heads, which was called “Video Chapters”, tested the service back in April, but now it is available to all users of mobile devices and browsers.
In order to enable you to navigate by tags, content authors should be all set. For this they will have to add information about chapters in the video description.
The first label must be the same as in the beginning of the video and be on time stamp 0:00. Through the gap from time to time should be the name of this piece of video. Then put another mark already on any fragment with an indication of what is in this place, and so on. When you are finished adding chapters, you save the changes and head of video will be listed when you view the video.
Here is an example of how Chapter
There is only one limitation that must be met in order for this feature to work properly. The videos must be at least three timestamp with a duration of 10 seconds or more for each. So they will normally appear in the description of the video to the button “more”.
To facilitate navigation through chapters YouTube videos embedded tactile feedback on mobile devices, so users will feel a vibration, informing them that they are entering a new Chapter. On platforms where the tactile feedback is not available, you can simply see the thickening of the timeline be a slight adhesion of the slider to its joints. That is, the head will be clearly visible. The Chapter in which you are, will be allocated and on mobile devices.
When I tried this opportunity of service, I enjoyed it very much. This opinion is shared by representatives of YouTube, who said that this feature received a lot of positive feedback during testing. However, apparently, the final version is slightly different from what was originally tested.
One of the changes is the possibility of adapting the number of heads that appear on screens of different sizes. This is done for the convenience of the user watching a video or in different orientations, or on different platforms. Even if in the video there will be many chapters, all should be comfortable.
Despite all the convenience features until all users will be able to use it. All due to the fact that not all authors know how to use it, and not all managed to adapt their video, because it is not automatic. Over time the rollers with the support of this function will appear more and more. Therefore, if you produce content, pay attention to it and use in their commercials. Most likely, Google will even change the algorithm of evaluation of the quality of the rollers. Previously considered a good indicator if the movie was watching until the end. This meant that the content is suitable and can give recommendations. Now with these tips videos will often be examined to the end, but skip the beginning. Although YouTube says that this function will not affect the recommendations.

A new feature has positioned YouTube as the best resource for long content, as the navigation of videos becomes more convenient. This feature can even raise the interest of users to some videos. They will not be disappointed by the need to scroll to the parts that they don’t want to look and poke at random in random places in the hope that there will be more interesting. In the end, fewer viewers would just leave. On the other hand, it can reduce the total time of viewing, because viewers are watching only certain sections of the video instead of full video.
Always nice to get new features to familiar products. Especially considering that it does not affect the old functions. The convenience of this function can be compared to as trying to find something in a thick book without a table of contents. With it easier.
