Mobile site

Unfortunately, it currently isn't possible to delete a video on the YouTube mobile site. If you have an Android or iOS device, you can use the Android or iOS YouTube app to delete videos. Otherwise, you can access YouTube on a computer to do so.

Nobody will be able to view the video after you delete it; however, it may take some time for video search results and thumbnail images to disappear.

You can only remove videos that you have uploaded yourself. To report abuse, harassment, inappropriate content, or privacy complaints, please visit the Safety Center. For copyright concerns, please visit the Copyright Center.

Remember: video deletions are permanent, so be careful! Once you’ve deleted a video, you can’t recover it through YouTube, so make sure you have a backup or really want to delete it.
