How to View Unavailable Video Titles From My YouTube Playlists

If you have a YouTube account, then you probably know how to make playlists.

If not, allow me to explain: Playlists are like folders for videos.

You can put any number of YouTube videos into a single playlist and then share that playlist with other people so they can see what videos are in it.

It’s a great way to keep track of your favorite content on YouTube and ensure that you never miss an update from any channel.

Besides being able to add as many videos as you want into one playlist, there’s another great feature about them: they don’t expire!

Once uploaded onto a playlist, those videos will stay there forever unless deleted by the original uploader or yourself (unless they’re unlisted).

So what happens if some of those titles become unavailable? How do I view unavailable video titles from my YouTube playlists?

How to add videos from the same channel to a playlist

You can add a video to a playlist from the channel’s main page, its video page, and its playlist pages.

  • From the channel’s main page, click the “Add to” button underneath any of your playlists or click “Create new playlist” and enter a name for that playlist. You will then see all of your playlists, including their names and the number of videos in each one. Click on the playlist in which you want to add this new video; then scroll down until you see an orange button with three dots next to it that says “add more videos” (or “upload more” if uploaded by someone else).


  • To add a video from within one of your playlists, simply click on its title (i.e., “My Playlist” in this example) at any point during playback or after having just finished playing it (the latter allows for quick access). If there are multiple pages available, hover over each one until you find one that has an orange button saying “add more videos.” Clicking this will bring up all other videos belonging to this particular channel within your selection criteria—i.e., only those that were added after being watched by viewers but still haven’t reached 1000 views yet!

How to add videos from different channels to a playlist

You can add videos from different channels to a playlist, but do check out the other channel’s privacy settings.

If they’re not public, you might have to wait until the video is available again before viewing it within your own channel’s playlist.

To add videos from different channels:

  • Go to My Playlists on YouTube and click Create new playlist.
  • Type in the name of your new playlist and click Create. This will open up a sidebar where you’ll be able to select multiple videos across different channels that are related or relevant enough for inclusion in one place (e.g., “Social Media Marketing Videos” or “Marketing Blog Posts”). Once selected, click Done when finished adding these links into this one spot where they can all be accessed later by clicking on them directly through this list (instead of having each individual link show up separately).

How to create new playlists

To create a new playlist:

  1. Log into your YouTube account if you have not already.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the screen, click your profile photo.
  3. Select “Playlists.”
  4. Click “Create” at the bottom of the page.

How to view unlisted YouTube videos in playlists

How do I view unlisted YouTube videos in playlists?

If you want to make a video unlisted on YouTube and still be able to view it in one of your playlists, then all you have to do is follow these steps:

  • Go into “video manager” by clicking on “Video Manager” (the three dots) at the top right corner of any page on YouTube; this will open up a dropdown menu where you can select “Library”, which will show all of your uploaded content;
  • Click on any video title (or click on an existing playlist);

How to view unavailable video titles from my YouTube playlists

There’s no need to worry about unavailable videos being deleted from your playlists.

They’re not deleted, just hidden.

This means that even if a video is taken down by YouTube for violating community guidelines or offensive content, you can still access it from the playlist and watch it in private.

However, there’s one caveat: These unavailable items won’t appear in search results anymore (if they ever did).

So when searching for them online, you may not find any results unless someone else has shared the link on social media.

Unavailable videos in my playlists: how do they work?

When you’re watching a playlist on YouTube, your video will stop working if it’s unavailable to view for any reason. This can happen for several reasons:

  1. The video might have been removed from YouTube by its owner.
  2. The video may be blocked in your region or country.
  3. Another user has muted the video, or it has been muted by the system itself due to copyright infringement (more on that later).

Whatever the cause of the issue is, you won’t be able to access any unavailable videos in my playlists unless they somehow become available again at some point in time—and there’s no way of knowing when or if this will happen!


YouTube is a great place to store and share your favorite videos.

If you’re looking for something special on YouTube, don’t forget that there are playlists and lists to help you find it!
