    The annotations are just text overlays within Youtube. Sort of like subtitles on a DVD.....they are not part of the video stream.

    https://ttsiodras.github.io/youtube.html but it looks very complex....

    Or else use a screen grabber to record the video with annotations.

    You can record youtube with Mirillis ACtion or the free open broadcaster software(it worked pretty ok for me...but still beta).
