    If enabled by your administrator, you also have the ability to add a time-based comment.
    For example, if you want to add a comment to the video at the 6 minutes and 22 second mark, play the video to that point, then click the Add comment at XX:XX check box. Alternatively, you may also "timestamp" your comment by inserting [XX:XX] anywhere in the Add a Comment box.
  3. Click the Add button. Your comment now displays below the Comments section. If you created a time-based comment, you and other users will see that time as a link that, once clicked, will take them to that specific time in the media.
