Ideally when you upload a Youtube videos, it is listed in spcific groups, channels and indexed by Youtube video search. Do you want to make Youtube videos private and hidden? Youtube has new “unlisted” video feature allowing you to upload and share private Youtube videos with specific friends.
Unlisted hidden videos from public search
As seen in screenshot below, select the unlisted video option for specific uploaded Youtube video. You will get unique URL for unlisted Youtube videos. Share that video URL with friends to allow them to view unlisted Youtube video. So any user with your unlisted Youtube video URL can watch it. However, this video will not be listed or search-able through Youtube video search.
If you want to share Youtube video with less than 25 Youtube users, then make Youtube video private instead of unlisted. A private Youtube video can be viewed by specific Youtube users and won’t be listed in groups, channels and Youtube video search. So, unlisted or private Youtube video – take your pick!
