Using Italics and Bolding In YouTube Comments

I just discovered today that the new YouTube comments design allows users to use some degree of markdown in their comments on videos. For instance, placing underscores around words and phrases makes them italicized:

_italics_

Placing asterisks around words and phrases makes them bold:

*bold*

Kind of nice I guess.

  8. How can I write a link, please? In the past, one could write a YT URL and the video's title appeared. Now it is not possible, because one cannot even paste a copied link, or anything else.

    1. Have you tried using a shortcut url?

    2. Yes, nothing changes. The main problem is that one cannot paste anything in the comments. Only in the replies.
      Thanks, anyway.

    3. You can paste in using Google Chrome. As far as I know, only Internet Explorer will not let you paste at YT.

      Thanks once again.

    5. For your information, paste is possible again in YT also with Mozilla.

  11. You may be expecting people to type in the word 'iPod', but some people think differently. An iPod to you is an MP3 player to someone else perhaps.YouTube Views kaufen
