YouTube Timetamps Not Working

Do you have a problem getting the timestamps on your YouTube video uploads to work correctly as they are supposed to? Not to worry. This can be a very frustrating issue for a YouTube video uploader to have to deal with.

So, how can we resolve this annoying issue with the timestamps on your uploaded YouTube videos? Please read on further to learn all about this issue as well as how you can resolve the problem.

Why Aren’t My Video Timestamps Working?

If the video chapters on the video you have uploaded to your YouTube channel are not working correctly, it could be because of one very important thing.

The very important reason why your video chapters are possibly not working correctly on the video or videos which you have recently uploaded to your YouTube channel is that you may have forgotten or neglected to add the intro timestamp.

The intro timestamp is the single most important timestamp you can add to any YouTube video you will create and/ or upload to the popular video viewing platform.

Without an intro timestamp on your YouTube video, none of the other timestamps for your video’s video chapters will show up correctly or work properly the way that you, of course, really want them to.

But do not worry about this! It is a very simple and easy fix.

You simply will now need to add the 00:00 timestamp to the very beginning of your uploaded YouTube video (the very first video chapter in your YouTube video), and, in doing this, you will now have activated the timestamp feature.

It will now work predictably and in the way that you need it to so that you can add any and all appropriate timestamps and video chapters to the YouTube video you are currently working on uploading.

6. You Have A Channel Strike, Which Means You Might Not Be Eligible For Chapters

What is a channel strike, and what does this mean for you in terms of affecting your upload options and choices when it comes to creating and then uploading new videos to your YouTube channel?

A channel strike on YouTube is something that can happen to your channel if YouTube has deemed that something about your channel or your content is in violation of any of their policies.

YouTube will only give you a channel strike on your personal YouTube video channel only if they find that something about your content or your videos is in violation of any of their policies for a second time.

They will not immediately strike your channel if it is the very first and only time something you have uploaded has, in some way, violated one of their policies.

7. Your Video Content Isn’t Appropriate For Some Viewers, Which Means They Won’t Be Eligible For Chapters

If YouTube does issue a channel strike against you, it should not come out of the blue. YouTube will only give you a channel strike on your personal YouTube video channel only if they find that something about your content or your videos is in violation.

They will not immediately strike your channel if it is the very first and only time something you have uploaded has, in some way, violated one of their policies.

What does a YouTube strike mean for you as a YouTube video uploader?

It means that for a space of time lasting for one full week (or seven days), you will not be able to upload a single new YouTube video or create or upload any live streams.

And you will also not be able to add, create, or upload any new stories to your YouTube channel. You will also, unfortunately, not even be able to schedule any upcoming live streams on your YouTube channel.
