My video doesn’t start at the beginning

< Back

Sometimes, when you play a video from YouTube, it doesn’t start at the beginning.

This is because YouTube registers the time you have stopped watching the video. When you open the video, it may continue where you left off.

To avoid this from happening, you could try to edit your video in incognito mode in the Google Chrome web browser, while not being being signed in into your YouTube account.

If you’re editing your own video, you could also try to host your video on a different platform, such as JWPlayer or Vimeo, since they don’t have this mechanism in place.
