Youtube Annotations

Youtube has added a new feature called Annotations! This is awesome for video producers because it allows you to write notes on your video! Include popup text with links and you can have some major kick ass videos! Imagine you say a URL – now you can write it out in the video and provide a link to it for viewers to click on during the video!

This is fantastic thanks Youtube!

Here’s an example.


Currently links can only be to: YouTube Video, Channel, or Search result.
Also currently the text is only available on videos embedded on Youtube.

  1. Ops! I had to redo this video several times since the capturing was all messed up. Can’t believe I screwed that up. Made a comment about it in the video.

  2. today announces YouTube Robot 2.0, a tool that enables you to download video from onto your PC, convert it to various formats to watch it when you are on the road on mobile devices like mobile phone, iPod, iPhone, Pocket PC, PSP, or Zune.

    YouTube Robot allows you to search for videos using keywords or browse video by category, author, channel, language, tags, etc. When you find something noteworthy, you can preview the video right in YouTube Robot and then download it onto the hard disk drive. The speed, at which you will be downloading, is very high: up to 5 times faster than other software when you download a single file and up to 4 times faster when you download multiple files at a time.

    Manual download is not the only option with YouTube Robot. You may as well schedule the download and conversion tasks to be executed automatically, even when you are not around. Downloading is followed by conversion to the format of your choice and uploading videos to a mobile device (if needed). For example, you can plug in iPod, select the video, go to bed, and when you wake up next morning, your iPod will be ready to play new YouTube videos.

  3. offers a much better tool and allows everyone to do this not just video uploaders. What’s really missing is bubbleply’s functionality on Youtube! Bubbleply should partner with youtube to give us a real interactive experience!!!

  4. That was pretty good Paul! My gripe with Annotations is that the linked videos can be found in the user’s video collection. So technically users don’t have to watc the intro video. They could skip straight to the secondary videos.

  5. Well , the view of the passage is totally correct ,your details is really reasonable and you guy give us valuable informative post, I totally agree the standpoint of upstairs. I often surfing on this forum when I m free and I find there are so much good information we can learn in this forum!
