Hi

Some youtube video showed someone added "output resistors to protect the output" on a VS1053 board.
Any ideas what that's about?

thx

It's hard to say without knowing where they were added.

If in series with the output, they limit short-circuit current during headphone plug insertion. (While inserting a plug, it physically short-circuits some of the contacts.) -- This is as much to protect the power supply as it is to protect the analog outputs.
