The segment tool allows a user to create segments, locked by timestamp, in order to see in-depth performance metrics on individual portions of their live video.
A user can manually create a segment by clicking and dragging their mouse over any section of the live video, entering a segment title, and clicking save.
A user can automatically create a segment by choosing the "Upload Segments" button at the top right of a live video, completing the segment upload template, and uploading the file.
Instructions for Creating and Uploading Segements

The file must have 3 columns.Segment nameStart time (format = 00:00:00)End time (format = 00:00:00)

If the file is an excel file (.xlsx), the start time and end time columns must be formated as "text" or "time". To format a cell, select the cell or column, right click -> Format Cells -> Choose "text" (best option) or "time".
