Flaws of YouTube
Amongst all the rights of YouTube, it also has its wrongs. The platform has a few bugs. One thing that often bothers people is in some video’s annotations turn on automatically. So naturally, they find a way to disable these annotations. Annotations are text which makes the viewers more immersed in the videos however in some cases they can become more of a hindrance than a feature.
To Disable Annotations on YouTube
When the annotations are playing, there will be the settings icon in the bottom right corner of the video window. Simply click on it, and you will see the ‘Annotation’ option in the first place. Simply click on the slider in front of it, and they will be disabled.
After disabling the annotations, if you wish to enable them again, repeat the process and tap on the annotations button again in settings, and they will be enabled.
However, these flaws or issues in YouTube have either been fixed or can be fixed using various methods. For example, in the case of scam videos, there is a dislike button, or you can comment to let people know about the video being fake. Another remedy is to report the video and YouTube simply will review it. In case of bugs or other inconvenient features they can always be disabled. Overall, YouTube is a great platform whether you intend to learn or be entertained.
