    Okay, I have a video I'd like to upload, but I want to do some things to the videos before or after uploading, but I'm not quite sure how.

    The first thing I'd like to do is, well... Okay, I've seen a video somewhere before on that site that was "clickable". They had a banner on their site that said "to get this product, click here" or something to that effect, and when you clicked on it, it brought you to their website. It was an actual rectangular graphical banner they added into/onto the movie, itself. My question is how do you do something like this? It would be really useful for me.

    Also, if it is a matter of editing a video, what's the best free/cracked software to edit the flv's, or do they need to be converted to something else first, and then edited? Please advise. Thanks.

    Okay, I've done that, and it shows fine on my site, but how do I get that same thing to display on the video on YouTUBE?

    On youtube itself ..for a clickable link on your video that goes outside of youtube they allow charities.
    But..having said that..I have seen one example of a commercial real estate channel on Youtube where you could click the video and leave youtube.
    I have not seen anything like that since..
    I assume that were paying decent $$ to google for that ability.
    So..as far as I am aware(without running an adwords campaign directed at your own channel)..I dont think you can do it..:(
    But..why not just place a clickable link in the description area straight under the video itself..I use that for small scale affiliate marketing.

    Oh yeah, I did that already.. I was just wondering if I could put something on the video without doing the whole AdWords bit. Oh well. Thanks anyway.
