    Hi guys,

    I want to add an annotation to my videos and ask people to subscribe to my channel, What is the exact URL for it so that when people click on the annotation they could simply subscribe to my channel?

    Thanks

    Go to the annotations section, click Edit Video and you should see annotations above video with all the other edit options. Create the type of annotation you
    want then at the bottom click the box for Link . Then use the dropdown on the right to select Subscribe then enter your channel name and it will create a link for you automatically.

    It will look like this basically have a youtube url and this with it. user/YTCHANNEL NAME?sub_confirmation=1 sometimes when I am typing in my
    channel name I hit a key wrong, then the link pops up and I end up continuing to type AFTER the =1 .. If that happens you can just delete the stuff you were typing after the =1 and click in your channel name before the ? and finish you channel name. and hit enter, save, publish.
