Live Video Annotation

The Live Video Annotation plugin allows you to add timed footnotes to a YouTube video. Visitors can see these notes later while watching the video.

  1. Upload videoannotations folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Place the shortcode [videoannotation video_id='VvcohzJvviQ'] in your posts or page. The video_id can be changed to the YouTube ID of the video of your choice.

Options

You can adjust the time the note will be visible by adding the expire_time variable to the shortcode.

I you want the note to be visible for 5 seconds, you can use the following shortcode:

[videoannotation video_id='VvcohzJvviQ' expire_time='5']

If you don't want the note to disappear you can set expite_time to 0 (zero):

[videoannotation video_id='VvcohzJvviQ' expire_time='0']

It is also possible to set the dimensions of your video by adding a width and height variable:

[videoannotation video_id='VvcohzJvviQ' expire_time='0' width='500' height='250']

Annotating a video

Make sure you are logged in to WordPress and visit the post where you added the video. Start playing the video and type your notes in the field below the video. To submit your note you can press [enter] or click on the annotate button.
