How to Add Chapters to Your Videos

Adding chapters actually helps you win your viewers, it helps the viewers navigate faster, they can just jump right up to what they want to see. For Instance, if your video is 35 minutes long and your viewer does not know what they will be watching for the next 20 minutes, the chapters will act as a guide or highlight, Once they see those chapters they already know what specific thing to look out for.
