Enabling/ Disabling Annoto

By default, having Annoto turned on or off in the channel/ category/ course is inherited from the site level preferences, meaning: if Annoto is enabled in your site preferences, it will be enabled in your videos, if it is disabled on a site level, Annoto will not be added to the videos by default.

You can enable/disable Annoto by choosing the preferences that you want.
