Youtube Annotations to be deleted. ALL OF THEM.

 Share

Just saw this.

 

Quote

Update: We will stop showing existing annotations to viewers starting January 15, 2019. All existing annotations will be removed. ...

 

...As adoption of end screens and cards has grown, the use of annotations has decreased by over 70%. For this reason, we discontinued annotations editor in May 2017.

 

This means you can no longer add new or edit existing annotations, only delete them.

It's a short post.

 

 

Personally I don't like this. MST3K was great with annotations for some of the more obscure references they made.

Rest in piece. Old Youtube comments are gone and now Annotations? Next thing you know they'll start deleting old video descriptions. 2009 Youtube is getting farther and farther away. :/

On a lot of my old videos the comments are gone, all my old channel comments are gone. I've noticed this on other peoples videos too. They didn't remove ALL of them, but it's certainly a thing.

My mistake. I'd have thought this was bigger news and thus, would have stayed on the FP longer.

Why kill it of though? It is almost 0 effort to just keep it.

Does this mean that people can't create subtitles for videos in other languages, or is that a separate thing?

That's separate. Anotations are those annoying squares over video's.

That's good. I was worried for a bit there that content was about to be effectively region-locked by language barriers.

Good riddance i would say i always used extensions to disable/remove annotations they are extremely annoying.
