Search by video ID

You can use videos IDs to search for up to 140 videos at a time.

  1. Go to your My Videos page. Get there by clicking your account icon > Creator Studio. On the left, click Video Manager > Videos.
  2. Open the advanced search options by clicking the drop-down arrow in the search box.
  3. In the Video ID search box, enter the video IDs separated with spaces or commas.
  4. Click Search.

Note: If any of your video IDs start with a hyphen, put quotes around that video ID ("-videoid") to make sure it's identified as a video ID (and not an advanced search operator that excludes it from the search).
