How to Disable YouTube Comments

There are many times that you may want to upload a video for in-class use, but you don’t want people to be able to add comments. There’s a very simply way to disable them. Let’s take a look.

First, log in to your YouTube account. You can only disable comments on videos you have uploaded. On the upper right of your screen, next to your name/account you will see the “upload” button, and a little gear. Click on the dropdown for the gear and click on the “Video Manager” in the dropdown.


The Video Manager gives you a list of your uploaded videos. Next to the video you want to disable comments for, click on the dropdown next to the “edit” button, and then click on “Info and Settings.”


Once in the “Info and Settings,” just below the video click on “Advanced Settings”


And then unclick the “Allow Comments” box. Don’t forget to click the “Save Changes” button when you’re finished... That’s it!! Comments for your video are now disabled!
