What information do you find when viewing a description of a YouTube video?

In the description of the videos that are uploaded on the YouTube platform , information is usually added that complements the content of the video, be it links from social networks, content sources or some important information. Among the most used content in the descriptions we have:

Links to download something

What is most often searched for on YouTube is files such as videos, music, games, books, movies or series. This type of file cannot be uploaded directly to the channel , but you can place a link that redirects to a web page or server where you can download that file.

The general content of the video

Many people put in the description of their videos what it is about, how long it lasts, the language it is in and many other things. Based on these details, people will decide whether to watch the video. They will also know exactly what kind of audience you are targeting.

The channel’s social networks

To have a better communication with the people who follow the content of the channel, sometimes the creators of the channel leave their social networks in the description of the video. In this way you can talk about details of the video and even the channel itself. So if you ever want to speak directly with the administrator of a channel you will have to find their contact information from the description of their videos.

What is the way to view the description of a YouTube video from a computer?

Viewing the description of a video on YouTube using a computer does not turn out to be such a difficult thing. You just have to follow the steps that we will give you below:

  • Turn on your computer, open your default browser and go to the YouTube website .
  • Find the video for which you want to see the description.
  • When you find the video, scroll down to the bottom of the video and click where it says ‘Show more’ to see the description of that specific video.

With all this, the process to see the description of a video within the YouTube platform would end. This procedure is the same that should be used when viewing the description of a video from the YouTube mobile application. If you want to enjoy all the features of YouTube , you just have to update the app to its latest version .

Why can’t I see the description of a YouTube video?

Perhaps you have tried to view the description of a YouTube video before and have failed to achieve anything. This kind of thing can be caused by any number of reasons other than a computer problem. Sometimes this type of problem can be caused by a problem in the channel or if not by an error in the loading of the YouTube page itself.

When the channel has few videos

It is possible that the channel where the video you want to see is has few videos and therefore the YouTube platform still does not allow you to place a description on them . If this is the situation, there is absolutely nothing to do but wait for YouTube to allow the channel owner to put a description on a video.

Another reason why you may not be able to see the description of a YouTube video is that they simply did not put one on it. It should be noted that if you want to download a YouTube video or share it, you will have to copy its link .

Errors when updating the browser

To make sure of the two things mentioned above, reload your browser page to see if the connection was slow and that is why they did not load all the YouTube details. If after doing this you still cannot see the description of the video, it is because it does not have one.
