[SOLVED] Finding unlisted videos by Youtube Channel

I’ve done a google search, and reddit. Was curious if anyone knew a site that would search for unlisted videos but not labeled private based on a channel link.

No, we cannot see any unlisted videos(of other’s channels) unless we have the video URL.


Yes @Daniel_Dawson is Correct.

There is no option to get URL of Unlisted videos from any channel/playlist unless they share them In playlist. and you can read below option and it’s use, under YouTube Community help.

Unlike public YouTube videos, there’s a fraction of videos that are deemed ‘unlisted,’ otherwise known as ‘hidden’ YouTube videos. This doesn’t mean YouTube hides them, but rather the channel that uploaded it has decided to hide it from the public.

When a channel uploads a video, they have the choice between three types of privacy settings:

  1. Public,
  2. Private, or
  3. Unlisted.

If they choose to unlist a YouTube video, it is no longer searchable through the search bar, nor can people find it on that video’s channel.

Unlisted videos and playlists can be seen and shared by anyone with the link . Your unlisted videos won’t appear to others who visit the “Videos” tab of your channel page. They won’t show up in YouTube’s search results unless someone adds your unlisted video to a public playlist.

You can share an unlisted video’s URL with other people. The people you share the video with don’t need a Google Account to see the video. Anyone with the link can also re-share it.

Private videos and playlists can only be seen by you and the people you choose . Your private videos won’t appear to others who visit the “Videos” tab of your channel page. They also won’t show up in YouTube’s search results.

Additional: This feature is same as we do share things on Google drive with specific users, Even you get the video URL it won’t show up unless OP gave access to your Email/account)

  • So, is that it? Not quite. An unlisted YouTube video can still be watched. In fact, the only way you can find an unlisted video is if you have the video’s URL link. Once you have that, you are free to watch it.

YouTube Public vs Private vs Unlisted Videos

Public Private Unlisted
Visibility Anyone Only the Google Accounts you have allowed Anyone with the link
Appears on YouTube Channel Yes No No
Appears on YouTube Search Yes No No (until someone adds it to a public playlist)
Who Can Share the Video Everyone No One Everyone

NOTE: Don’t take YouTube that easy, their ToS and privacy are much strict you ever imagine, no tricks can be used against Private or Unlisted videos.
