How to add a specific type of annotation to a Youtube video?
March 15, 2014 7:53 PM   Subscribe

Hi folks, I have a video uploaded on Youtube that I'd like to add an annotation to - a link to a Google Map that I created. But for some reason Youtube only allows links to a few select destinations (e.g. another video, a personal webpage). Is there anyway I can get around this?

The best way I've found is to make a shortened link (bitly) and post the address on the screen. As far as I know, that's the only way - and that's obviously not clickable.

Can you put in an annotation that links to a personal webpage and then put a redirect on that webpage or embed the Google Map in the webpage?
