Nov 3, 2020


Have you ever asked yourself: "How do I find my unlisted videos on YouTube?" If so, you aren't alone. Navigating YouTube and finding your non-public videos can be a difficult process. However, with a little bit of practice and the right instructions, you'll be able to find your unlisted YouTube videos quickly and easily.

You can find your unlisted videos on YouTube both on your YouTube channel page and in the YouTube Studio. If you want to make any metadata edits to an unlisted video or you want to make it public, you will need to do so from the YouTube Studio. If you just want to view your unlisted video on YouTube, however, you can do so from your channel page.

As a content creator on YouTube, being able to navigate through the various pages and menus on the website is crucial. After all, you don't want to be spending all of your time searching for something! So, the sooner you can learn how to find certain items on YouTube (unlisted videos in this case), the sooner you can start using your time on other activities.

Where Can I See My Unlisted Videos on YouTube


If you've ever caught yourself asking: "Where can I see my unlisted videos on YouTube?" then you aren't alone. Navigating around YouTube and finding your unlisted videos can be a confusing process. However, finding unlisted videos isn't as confusing as you might think. These videos can be found quickly and easily- if you know where to look for them.

Your unlisted videos can be found both on your channel page and in the YouTube Studio. If you want to do any edits to the metadata of your video or you want to change its status, you'll need to do so from the YouTube Studio. With this said, you can view the video from your channel page or the YouTube Studio.

It's easiest to find videos that are unlisted by going to the YouTube Studio. This way, if you want to make any modifications to the metadata of the video, you'll be able to do so right away. So, whenever you want to look at a video uploaded as unlisted, you should do so in the YouTube Studio.

Keep in mind, to access your YouTube Studio, you will need to be signed in to your YouTube channel with the unlisted videos. You cannot access the YouTube Studio and see your unlisted videos from another channel- even if it is on the same YouTube account. So, make sure you're signed in to the right channel!

How Do I Find My Unlisted Videos on My YouTube Channel


Finding unlisted videos in the YouTube Studio is a similar process to finding private videos. With just a few clicks, you'll have access to your entire video library- including your videos that are unlisted. While navigating to the YouTube Studio takes longer than going to your channel page, finding videos this way will help you save time if changes or edits need to be made.

Here's how you can find your unlisted videos on your YouTube channel:

Step 1 - Go to the YouTube Studio

First, you will need to navigate your way to the YouTube Studio. Getting to the YouTube Studio is a very easy process. Simply click on your channel icon in the top right corner of your screen while on YouTube, and select the "YouTube Studio" option from the menu that appears.

Step 2 - Click the "Videos" or "Content" Menu Item

Once you click on the "YouTube Studio" menu option, you should be brought to a new page. The page you will be brought to is the YouTube Dashboard. From the YouTube Dashboard, you can navigate the backend of your channel. In this case, you will need to select the "Videos" or "Content" item from the menu located on the left side of your screen.

Step 3 - Find Your Unlisted Video

After clicking on the "Videos" or "Content" menu item, you should be brought to a screen containing all of your YouTube videos. On this screen, you will be able to find all of your videos- including your unlisted videos. To make things easier, look under the "Visibility" column for videos marked as unlisted.

Step 4 - Search for Your Video (Optional)

Something that can make it easier for you to find videos in the YouTube Studio is to search for them using the search bar. Instead of having to scroll through all of your videos, you can simply type in the title of the video you are searching for, and you will then be able to directly select the video.

Can My YouTube Subscribers See My Unlisted Videos


I'm often asked the question: "Can my YouTube subscribers see my unlisted videos?" by content creators. This is a good question, as most videos that are uploaded in unlisted more are done so to limit the visibility of the video. You'll be happy to know that your subscribers will not be able to see your unlisted videos if they are not placed in a public playlist.

However, you mustn't release the URL of your unlisted video to the public. Anyone who possesses the URL to your unlisted video will be able to view it and share it with other people. So, if you do not want your video to be seen by anybody, keep the URL of your video hidden from the public.

Before publishing an unlisted video, make sure you have no auto-share services set up that might share your unlisted video with people. The last thing you want to do is accidently post your unlisted video on a social media platform- this defeats one of the purposes of uploading unlisted videos!


While confusing and difficult at first, navigating YouTube does become easier over time. You now know how to find your unlisted YouTube videos on your YouTube channel. Simply navigate your way to the YouTube Studio and find your unlisted videos on your video manager screen.
