Video chaptering helps you add keywords or captions to specific moments within your videos (i.e. Bedroom, Bathroom, Granite Countertops w/ wall-mounted Kohler kitchen sink, Amazing 360 degree roofdeck view!). Chapters will help you add context and spotlight valuable content within in your videos. In essence, the length of your videos are no longer an issue with video chaptering.

Here is a quick how-to guide for adding chapters to your videos on WellcomeMat. Also, you can learn more about the history of video chaptering here.
