How do I create an annotation as an invisible button that opens a link when clicked?


  1. Hover over the player and select Events.
  2. Click Add Event.
  3. Click Annotation and hit Add Event.
  4. Set the Background Transparency to 100% and click Apply.
  5. Erase the content.
  6. Click Source and replace the code with the code below.
    Note: Remember to change the highlighted URL below to your desired web addressed.
  7. Match the highlighted height & width inside the code to the Width & Height of your annotation (Image below) to avoid scrollbars inside the annotation.
  8. Set the Annotation time.
  9. Publish the annotation.
  10. Click Save.
<style type="text/css">/* Quick reset to ensure the Annotation area is full height/width and no default padding*/
width: 100%;
margin: 0 auto;

height: 176px; /* Annotation Height */
width: 632px; /* Annotation Width */

.website-link a{
display: block;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
text-decoration: none;

<div class="website-link">
<a target="_blank" href="">&nbsp;</a>
