How to Find Your Own Unlisted YouTube Videos?
STEP 1: Go to www.YouTube.com.
STEP 2: Click on your profile picture in the right-hand corner, after clicking you will see a drop-down menu click “YouTube Studio“, then you will be redirected to it.
STEP 3: From the menu on your left click on “Content“, this will show all the videos ever uploaded to your YouTube channel except the deleted ones.
STEP 4: You can either find your unlisted videos either by seeing their “Visibility” show near videos or you can filter them by clicking on the “Filter” option.
STEP 5: After you click the “Filter” option a menu will appear where you can select to filter out only unlisted videos on basis of their visibility.
How To Find Unlisted YouTube Videos of Others?
Finding the unlisted videos on your channel is a breeze but finding unlisted YouTube videos of others is not so easy, I would say it’s more of a complicated task. But there are still some hit and trial methods that you can try, they are all listed below.
METHOD 1: Through Google search
There is a slight chance that you can find unlisted videos by just doing a few google searches, though YouTube claims it’s not possible but it’s not totally correct. Just by running the google query “site:youtube.com ‘This video is unlisted. Only those with the link can see it’ -in URL:all_comments,” users will be able to view a limited number of unlisted videos, so by repeating this method you can narrow down to the video you are looking for.
METHOD 2: A website for unlisted videos
Unlisted Videos, is a NewZealand based website launched on 28 December 2014. It is one of a kind website where you can get a list of unlisted videos from all over YouTube. YOu can submit your own unlisted video or even others, search by their channel names, video title, etc. One more thing you can only be able to search for videos of huge YouTubers or celebrities but not of an average YouTuber.
METHOD 3: Through YouTube Playlist
Did you know that unlisted videos become visible if they are placed in a playlist, though they still can’t be searched cause they won’t be indexed by bots? Well, I don’t if it’s some kind of glitch that will be taken care of in the near future, but let’s be grateful for it.
Finally, these were 2 easy ways on How to find unlisted YouTube videos?
