Stream Your Whole Album with One Video Using YouTube Annotations

The band Strangeletter recently hit us up with a YouTube idea we thought was worth sharing.

They edited a 51-minute video that paired their entire album’s music with different still images for each song. When they posted it on YouTube, they added static Annotations with track numbers and song titles that would skip to that particular part of the video. If this sounds at all confusing, check out the video above and it will make perfect sense.

If the thought of uploading a different video for each of your songs sounds like a pain, this method is an easy alternative. You can make it fancy (with different stills or video chapters for each song) or you could keep it simple (and just have one still photo for the whole album.)

Thanks to Strangeletter for sharing the idea. Also, check out our article on using YouTube annotations if you have questions about adding them to your videos.
