Google Video Structured Data Help Document Gets A Big Update

Lizzi Harvey from Google announced on Twitter that the video structured data doc got a big refresh. I took a quick look and yes, it is so much better. Google added More screenshots, how to mark timestamps on YouTube videos, how monitor your video performance with Search Console, the live badge docs are now merged with main video docs and so much more.
