Thanks for the great tip! When I went back to my video to add annotation, I didn't find the option of "Associated Website."
I see that this tutorial is a year old. Do you think YouTube now does not allow a link to websites?
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
Have you associated a website with your YouTube channel? You'll need to have that first before it will give you the option.

Hi Marion,
We just pressed "play" in order to watch your video, and we could hear your voice, but the screen just went a "green" colour with no image.
It does the same with all videos as well as lesson training videos.
Do you know if anyone else has this problem?

Perhaps the problem is browser related. Have you tried using a different browser (Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer)? If the problem persists you could ask the question in the question box above and see if the community can help.

It doesn't happen on the ipad.
It only happens on the laptop.
We think it might be a setting !!

At least you can watch the videos on the iPad. :)

Thanks! This was an "aha" moment which I'll need to try. I've often thought there needed to be a way to accomplish this.

Excellent video Marion. Keep them coming!

I just have one question: I am unable to add a link to my website because I haven't associated my website with my current Google account. My website was associated with my previous Google acount, and I created a new Google account because my YouTube access had been banned several years ago on my previous account.

Should I associate my website with my new Google account? Or will they ban my YouTube access on my new account?

I maybe wrong Marcus but I think it should be fine if you associate your website with your new Google account.
