#StackBounty: #youtube #notifications Is it possible to get notifications for new comments on a YouTube video?

Bounty: 50

Suppose that there is a video on YouTube which is not on my channel, but published by somebody else.

Is there some way in which I can subscribe to get the notifications about new comments on that particular video?

One use case I can imagine: Many teachers now use YouTube to publish videos with their lectures. And both the students and the teacher might be interested to see new comments. (And in many cases the YouTube channel is not the channel created by the teacher – it might be a channel of the school/department/university. So it’s a bit different from setting up notifications about new activity on my own videos.)

Note. I have seen that there is already this question: How to subscribe to YouTube comments? From the formulation of the question it seems that this question might be considered a duplicate of that one. However, the accepted answer answers the question as if the word subscribe was meant as pay for a subscription. (I am not sure whether this is what the asker intended, but that is the answer they’ve accepted.) Therefore I opted for a new question rather than a bounty on the old one – since to some extent, the offered bounty would be asking for something different from the already accepted answer.
