If you’re not that kind of YouTuber who likes to be ironic and wants all his videos to be perfect because he never makes mistakes, we have good news for you. YouTube is now adding the “corrections” feature to make it easier to fix your mistakes in the videos you post.
The Verge brings the news and tells us how it works. Content creators can add more corrections in an easy way. They will appear as info cards in the video at the right time after the footage is uploaded. Viewers will have the option to extend the correction notes to the video description.
YouTube’s help page says:
After you upload a video, you can edit your video details in YouTube Studio. Edit everything from your video title to caption and comment settings. Learn how to make bulk edits to videos.
In order to edit video details, you need to perform a few simple steps. The first thing you need to do is simply log in to YouTube Studio. The next step will be to select “Content” from the left menu. Next, you will need to click on a title or thumbnail of a video. The last step will be to set the parameters for a video and click “Save”.
The official description couldn’t have been easier to understand:
For corrections in your video, add “Correction:” or “Corrections:”, then add the timestamp and explanation of your correction. This section should appear after all video chapters. When your audience watches your video, a View Corrections info card appears.
YouTube has around 800 million videos, which can only mean that there are plenty of content creators out there. Every day, these YouTubers upload around 720,000 hours of content to the platform. You should also keep in mind that YouTube is a more popular search engine than Microsoft’s Bing.
