When updating a version of a video (especially in a corporate environment), it's wise to let the rest of your team know where you're up to. It can detract from your amount of hits if you include the version details in the title, so it's best to find a subtle way to incorporate it into the video itself.

The best way to label the version is as follows:

When the product owner affirms a new version, the major changes (i.e. the number before the decimal point)
