Tech Tip: Unlisted YouTube videos suddenly unavailable to viewers

Youtube recently made a security update to Unlisted videos that were uploaded before January 1, 2017. These videos were made Private.

As a result, viewers will have trouble watching these video links from YouTube. They will be prompted with a message that states ‘Video unavailable. This video is private.’ Authors of the video(s) will need to make them public. Please follow the instructions in this knowledge base on how to do so.

Please contact IT Customer Support if you have a video that is hosted on the GRCC TV channel rather than your own account and we will be happy to get them updated for you. 

For more information and helpful tips, please visit the IT Customer Support Portal or contact the IT Customer Support Desk at x4357.
