You can utilize Bookmarks on a video to timestamp a certain part of the video, which allows users to go straight to that part of the video. There are two ways to bookmark a video: Direct Add and through the Bookmarks Window.
This article will show you how to use Direct Add. Direct Add works if you already know where your timestamp is. View our article on the Bookmarks Window if you need to find your timestamp.
You must upload media before you bookmark a video on demand.
