    Hi guys,

    I m just wondering why the description box of YT video page is so simple! No option/function for colors, fonts, underlines etc?!

    Is it possible to bold a word/sentence in the description of a YT video? Any ligimate trick to change the fonts/colors and so on?

    Thanks

    There's no way to change fonts or colours. I guess YouTube want their site to be consistent with their branding etc..

    You could try copy and pasting symbols from somewhere like - http://copypastecharacter.com/

    This might help you make a more eye catching description (or title).

    Thanks Beven,

    You are really helpful.


    Do you know if YT allows me to use all of those symbols in the tittle or the description of a Video. I already used one of them and yet not problem.

    So Even YT does not allow Bolding, right?!

    Its a video sharing site and you should focus just on the video quality, instead of promoting physical appearance of content.
