I've started uploading some videos to YouTube, Google Video, AOL, etc. I would like to be able to have a live hyperlink to my website displayed at the end of the video. Is there a way to do this? Is there a streaming video host that offerrs it, or an application I can use to put it on my video before I upload it?

Thanks in advance.

That would be nice. I'm searching as well, but haven't uploaded anything yet so I don't know the actual functions that well.

You can link to another Youtube video within your own video.

...this guy has a seven star rating! I thought five would be the max?

LostOne,

Five is the max, what you saw is 7 viewers have rated it with an average of 5 stars.

there used to be a way to put a clickable link in the description.

not sure if it still works anymore.

I've seen Youtubes with actual clickable captions in rare instances.

How does this work?

Yes we need to raise interest in this topic here.

You can get a hyperlink in the description by entering the url, preferably at the beginning so it's more visible before the description character limit cuts it off. For example:

http://www.example.com - Information about my site and the videos I am interested in showing...

You can also use any subdomain, but it can canabolize the small one line description offered when drilling for searches, unless you have a title that takes care of it.
