YouTube Annotations…Why Didn’t I Think Of This Sooner?

I’m kicking myself for not thinking of this sooner. You’ve seen me complain about having to answer the same questions over and over again in YouTube videos, and it didn’t occur to me until recently that a partial solution to my problem was right in front of me all along: the ability to annotate my videos! YouTube introduced this feature a while back, and it allows the owner of a video to create text overlay comments in the video – essentially adding information to the video after the video has been shot. I think I can cut down on 80% of the repetitive questions I get if I add annotations to my videos explaining that, no, that netbook doesn’t come with an optical drive. 🙂
