    Alternative solutions

    As I would have understood, deleting a video from YouTube is an irreversible procedure: the deleted video will not only no longer be available on the video sharing platform, but it will not even be possible to recover it in case of second thoughts. For this reason, you need to know that they exist alternative solutions to the definitive deletion of a video that could be suitable for you.


    The first solution you can consider is to make the videos private. After logging into your account, click on yours photo in alto a destra and selects the voice Creator Studio. Press, therefore, on the voice Video management present in the sidebar on the left and click on the item Modification related to the video of your interest.

    If you are operating through the YouTube app for smartphones and tablets, tap yours photo and presses on the voice My channel, then select the option Video, fai tap sull'icona dei three vertical dots present next to the video to be edited and presses on the item Modification.

    Now, press on the option Public, select the voice Private and click sul pulsating Save Changes present at the top right. Alternatively, put the check mark next to the video of your interest (even more than one), press on the item Actions at the top and select the option Private from the menu that appears, then put the check mark next to the item I am aware that I will not be able to cancel this update once it has started and click sul pulsating It is sent.

    By doing so, the video will no longer be publicly visible, but it will remain available on your YouTube channel and, in case of second thoughts, you can make it public again at any time. To learn more, you can read my guide on how YouTube works.

    A similar solution to private video is the mode Non in cast which makes the video invisible to the public, but still accessible to those who know the address. The procedure for making a video Non in cast it is similar to what was previously described for private videos: when editing the video, presses on the voice Public, select the option Non in cast and click sul pulsating Save Changes.

    If, on the other hand, your intention is to put an end to your YouTube experience and you want to delete all your tracks, you can choose to delete the channel: in this case, I leave you to my guide on how to delete a YouTube channel.
