If you're a regular content creator or newbie, you've likely ever wondered how share your video if you decide to put it in private, many believe this is not possible, but the answer is very different as you will notice below.

How to share a private video from a YouTube channel?

Going straight to the point from the beginning so that you can learn how to share a private video from a YouTube channel as soon as possible, the first thing you need to know is that you will need to use the official YouTube Studio platform for this process.



If this has been clear to you, then get started. As step number one you have to enter your YouTube Studio video portal, you do this by going to your video as if you were to play it and giving the blue button called "Edit video" (it's in the lower left corner).

With this action you will be taken to the video editing panel, there you will notice that on the left there is a list of options, press "More functions", which in turn will show a small section where you now have to choose "Share privately".

Next, a pop-up window will appear where you will be asked to write the email addresses of the people you want to send the link of your video to. When you have entered them all, Awards simply “Save and return to Youtube Studio”.

With that everything will be ready, and immediately a link will be emailed to the people you have chosen to share your video with. It should be noted that email notification can be disabled.


To do this you have to press the box that performs this same function (located in the lower left corner), before saving and returning to Youtube, with this the chosen emails will still have permission, but will not receive a notice of the same.


What types of visibility do YouTube videos have?

With the above, you already know how to share a private video from a YouTube channel, so to complete your information, it will show you what types of visibility exist on YouTube when uploading videos.

The first is the best known and is the public one. By default, all videos uploaded to this platform are made public (if you don't indicate that you want it to be private), this type of access allows anyone to view the video without restrictions, either because you find it on YouTube or you send them the URL.

Another method is the already private name. This type of video can only be seen by those enabled by the user to use them, so not even having the URL of the video will be able to access it.


Finally there are the hidden ones, these videos are a combination of the previous two, as they will not appear if you search for them on YouTube, but as long as you have the URL you can enter it whenever you want.

And voila, now you're finally done, and it's not only clear to you how to share a private video from a YouTube channel, but also what types of exposure there are, so you can go.


However, before that happens, it wouldn't hurt to keep looking guides to help you understand more about YouTube's private functions, how: How to send and receive private messages on YouTube?
