The time stamps and the hash tags are hyperlinked. How are they doing this?

Thank you.

    If I understand correctly (you're just looking to add a clickable time stamp to your description?), you can simply add this in the video's description in the minutes:seconds format. This video provides a walkthrough: https://youtu.be/U6WcbndjaAc

    You are allowed 3 hashtags.

    These will naturally appear just below the video and be clickable.

    Like this:


    If someone clicks on a hashtag then they will see more videos on the hashtag topic.

    YouTube Chapters are like timestamps. They break up the video into bite sized pieces.

    The times become clickable automatically if set up right and take a viewer to the part of the video that is of interest to them

    To add other links, simply included the FULL url string.

    To your question how YouTube converts timestamps to hyperlinks, this is done on rendering of the page. They simply detect hashtags, or timestamps in your description and replace it with hyperlinks.

      I understand you want to raise your post count, but for goodness sake man, will you stop commenting on dead threads that have been answered... because you're pushing all the useless threads back to the top of the forum.


      Are you here to help others or just yourself? I know what it looks like from where I'm sitting.

      If your video is on YouTube, just embed the video to your website.

    You can add full links to any of your YouTube video descriptions.

    3 ways to add a clickable URL in the YouTube channel description:

    To add a link to your YouTube video descriptions, you'll need to go through your account's Creator Studio.
    Adding links to YouTube video descriptions is a great way to credit your research and music sources, cite who helped you make the video, or to advertise your own website.
    You can add links to your description on both desktops and in the YouTube mobile app.
