While it’s possible to find chemistry over video, relationships can still fizzle after the first in-person date. Here are some tips to ensure your virtual date goes smoothly.

Google is testing a timestamp feature

Google is testing a new feature on mobile devices that will show timestamps for some of the videos in search results. This will make it easier for people to move from one section of the video to another.

The feature is called “Chapters” and it will work by using AI to parse the content of a video. It will then divide a long video into sections and label them with names provided by the creator, reports Android Police.

This is a good way to make it easier for people to find the section of a video they’re interested in. It also makes it more accessible for people who use screen readers.

YouTube might not show the upload date of a video

YouTube is one of the most popular video platforms on the Internet. It’s a great place to watch videos of all kinds, from clips of news broadcasts to home videos of family events.

If you want to find out when a video was uploaded on YouTube, there are a few ways to do it. The first is to use a Chrome browser extension.

Another way is to use a third-party online tool that allows you to see all of the information associated with a specific video, including its upload date.

This method works best if you’re watching a video in a tablet or smartphone view. You can also try deleting all of your browser data to see if that fixes the problem.

Alternatively, you can wait for YouTube to fix the issue. Sometimes, the upload date isn’t visible because of a glitch that YouTube engineers are working to fix.

Older videos might not have a timestamp

In computer files, a timestamp is a string that shows the date and time when something was last modified. They’re also used in debug logs for servers and programs that want to track events.

New in 2020, YouTube has a feature called video chapters that lets you mark sections of your video with timestamps. These timestamps and labels help users navigate the video and find the exact point in your content they’re looking for.

If you want to use this feature, add your list of chapter titles and timestamps to the description of your video. Remember, the first chapter must start at 0:00 and all subsequent chapters must follow one another chronologically. This helps Google and users understand precisely what they’re getting. It’s a great way to enhance your video’s user experience and maintain viewership. Just be sure to avoid adjusting the timestamps, as that might cause your links to break. You could also get some unwanted video views if your viewers see a broken link in your YouTube video description.
