    See this clip, around the 1.01 mark.
    http://www.youtube.com/user/movieclips?ob=0

    See how there are links to other videos inside the video. Is this done via the usual "in embed" annotations, that anyone can do, or is it done through some special service that this very popular YT channel has access to? Is it done through the API or is it done manually?

    I would like to know how one could go about to:
    1. Specify other videos to watch in the same way
    2. Have the videos chosen from the same category in my channel.

    I know this is a pretty complicated question. But I am certain there is some geek out there that knows how this works.

    They look like simple annotations. Just the video creator do the timing pretty well and they look like part from the video (the posters).

    Yes, it is possible to link to other videos via annotations.
    When you add an annotation like Speech bubble or note. You will find a link (checkbox) at the bottom. You can use it to add annotations which links to other video or channel. I donno if there is a software tat can do this, if you find any software let me know buddy :)

    Looks like autoannotate is currently non functional. In touch with someone else now to maybe have this thing custom built.
