My question is how can i add clickable text hyperlinks and by that i mean :

<a href="https://example.com">example</a>

BUT in YouTube comments, I know it is possible because of a particular comment on an old Install gentoo meme video : Comment with hyperlink

So far i have tried to use these with no luck :

  • [Text](https://example.com)
  • <https://example.com>
  • <a href="https://example.com">example</a>

Recently YouTube rolled out a feature that changes the text of links to YouTube videos. When you link to another YouTube video now, the link URL is automatically replaced with the target video’s title.

There is no way to do this manually, or with links to other websites.

For example, the original comment:

This music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9yLJoD2hz8

becomes this automatically:

This music: A piece of magicmix

  • oh I see now, thank you! do you by any chance know how recently this feature was added?

  • You're welcome! I'm not sure when this was added.

Does this not work anymore? I tried adding the exact same link and it stays the link. It does not change to the title text of the video I am linking to.


Use ahref and make a comment. This will make your anchor text clickable. I hope you like the answer, however, this is my opinion as I follow this thing while posting keywords for seo purpose.
