Adding chapters to your video

Adding chapters to your video only takes a few seconds and you can make it significantly easier for your viewers to find the information they're looking for while watching your recording. Here's everything to know about adding timestamps and chapters in Prezi Video.

Adding timestamps from the video admin page

When recording online, you'll be taken to the video admin page after you finish recording and finalize your video. Here, you can add a title, a description and hashtags to your video, manage its privacy settings and enable and download subtitles.

Pro Tip: You can access the video admin page any time from your Prezi Video dashboard by clicking the cogwheel icon on the video's thumbnail.

You can add timestamps and divide your video into chapters by adding timestamps in the description box. By default, the video will be divided into chapters based on the slides you have added. However, you can also type the chapter titles here next to a timestamp to have customised chapters.

Make sure to always start with 0:00 and continue with the timestamp your next chapter begins at.

Viewing chapters on the video view page

Once you add your timestamps, the chapters will then be displayed on the video's view page. Viwers can jump forward by selecting a chapter in the sidebar. 

You should know: You can manually name your chapters which will then be displayed here in the sidebar.By default, the chapters are named using the text displayed on your slide. Let's say your 2nd slide does not have any text: it will then automatically be named Chapter 2.
