Any videos that you uploaded before a certain date will be converted to PRIVATE videos which means that if you embedded them anywhere, they won't work anymore. You can opt out of this change There is a link near the bottom.

**HERE IS THE LINK TO OPT OUT OF THIS CHANGE
https://support.google.com/youtube/contact/...unlisted_update
Your Unlisted videos uploaded before January 1, 2017 will be made Private starting July 23, 2021. To see the videos affected by this change, click here from a computer. For information on how this will affect your channel, keep reading or visit the Help Center.


Why the change
In 2017, we rolled out an update to the system that generates new YouTube Unlisted links, which included security enhancements that make the links for your Unlisted videos even harder for someone to discover without you sharing with them. We’re now making changes to older Unlisted videos that were uploaded before this update took place.


What you can do
You have the following options for your legacy videos:

Do nothing. We’ll set any affected videos to Private starting July 23, 2021. Private videos can only be seen by you and the people you choose. Note that once these videos are made Private starting July 23, any link previously used to embed or share them as Unlisted will no longer work.
Opt out of this change. Fill out this form by July 23, 2021 to keep your legacy videos in their current Unlisted state. If you treat your Unlisted videos like Public videos (e.g. they’re embedded on third party sites or shared on social media), we recommend you opt out of this change. If you choose to opt out, your legacy links will continue working as they do today but they won’t get the benefit of this security update.
Make your Unlisted video Public. Alternatively, you can make the video Public to make it publicly accessible. Your video will be visible to anyone using YouTube and will show up in search results, recommended videos and related video lists.
Reupload as a new Unlisted video: If you want to keep your videos Unlisted and benefit from this security update, you’ll need to download them and re-upload them as Unlisted under the new system. However, data associated with the original upload, like views or comments, won’t transfer. Any embedded videos using the old link would also need to be updated to the new video URL. Learn more.

We understand that this change may be challenging, so we’re giving you time to make adjustments to your videos before this change takes effect on July 23, 2021.


Thanks,
The YouTube Team

Sure thing!! They keep changing the rules over at youtube and they send out minimal notices it seems. They even changed the way the entire algorithm worked to favor 10 minute vids then changed it again for 8 minute vids. They want more adverts per vid but people were not watching til the end so they reduced it. Also they are pushing 2 ads per advert section now instead of one. It's starting to be as bad as broadcast TV! More ads less show. sad.gif

Sure thing smile.gif I'll try to share any new bits about youtube that I find. Many changes are not made public and you only find out later through other people on youtube talking about them. Thankfully some things they do share. it's easy to opt out of this which Im glad they let you do. If not, it would be a bit of a pain. Some changes they don't give anyone a choice about.

Score!!! Im not sure how many of my vids would have gone away from this but I'm thinking quite a few. It's great to see you on GMC again and you've made amazing progress on your playing and your gear and your production!! I hope we see more of you smile.gif
