Manage your uploaded videos in Video Manager

Video Manager provides tools and features to help you organize and make changes to your videos and account. To get there, you need to select Video Manager from your Creator Studio menu on the left hand side.

Navigating Video Manager

Along the left side of the page, you'll notice a few different sections under Video Manager (if not, click on Video Manager to see them).

  • Videos: Contains all of your uploads, and lets you make changes to them. Use the search bar to search by title, tag, keyword, privacy status, or upload date.
  • Playlists: Find and edit your playlists
  • Search History: Lists terms you've recently searched for - clear your history here
  • Likes: A list of your liked videos. Save these videos to a playlist from this section.

Other sections will appear here depending on your account status. For example, Copyright Notices will appear if you have copyright strikes or Content ID matches on any of your videos.
