You can divide YouTube videos into chapters to draw the viewers attention to key topics or segments. The simplest way that I have found to do this is by creating an episode set list in the description for the video. For example on of my latest videos looks like this:
The text input in the video description to create these chapter breaks simply needs the time stamps in order to translate the information into video segments. You can create as many chapters as you would like, I try to hit the key points.
This week on The DYOJO Podcast we discuss:
* Book #5 from The DYOJO - Challenge Accepted
* The government’s plan to save us all from gas stoves

Thursdays are for The DYOJO Podcast - helping contractors shorten their DANG learning curve for personal and professional development.
Notice in the bottom right corner there is a small gap between the running video line. Each of these breaks in the video sequence relates to the time stamps that were written into the description. Viewers who want to go to a particular segment or topic can click on the time stamps in the description or hover over the video line for a summary based on the descriptions that were composed by the content creator.
Below the video description is a summary of the chapters with the time stamp, description, and a snippet of the video associated with that segment.
