Turn comments on or off

If you aren't able to follow these instructions, you are likely using the old version of YouTube. If you're using a newer browser, update to the current version of YouTube.

Manage video settings

You can decide if you want to allow viewers to comment on specific videos. 

  1. Sign in to YouTube on a computer.
  2. Go to Creator Studio > Video Manager.
  3. Select the box next to any of the videos you want to manage. 
  4. At the top of the screen, click the Actions menu. 
  5. Select More actions > Comments
  6. Select or unselect Do not allow comments.

Comments are not available on private videos. If you want to allow comments on a video that's not publicly available, post an unlisted video instead.
