This week we answer a viewer's question about how to make your videos interactive with pop-up videos, subscription links, clickable videos and such.

First, create your video with whatever text, image, or video clip you want to be clickable in your video. Then, after it's uploaded to YouTube, go to add those annotations respectively. I usually end up using the "Spotlight" annotation and click to drag it around whatever area of my video I want to make clickable for however long. Then I turn it into the appropriate link I want it to be, save, and then publish!

QUESTION: What ideas do you have for using annotations interactively?
