Pop-Up Video for YouTube

Turn Your YouTube Vids into Your Own Pop-Up Videos

Oh how I miss my old Saturday afternoon VH-1 standby. . .Pop-Up Video. Learning interesting (and somewhat useless) facts about my favorite music videos always made those lazy days pass with ease. If you were a big fan of the pop-up bubbles that danced in your screen right along with Rick Astley's hips, then you'll love the newest feature on YouTube: Video Annotations.

Despite the boring name, you can make your own pop-up hit with that video you uploaded last week starring you and your buddies LARPing it out in the woods. Control the length, size, and duration that the note boxes appear on the screen for as many useless facts you can provide. Unfortunately, you'll have to do without the bubble popping sound for now. But hopefully they'll add that feature soon, cause it's just not the same without it.
