Viewing Delivery Status Files

The features described in this article are available only to partners who use YouTube's Content Manager to manage their copyrighted content.

Downloading status files from Content Manager

After processing a spreadsheet or an XML file, YouTube will post status file(s) indicating the actions that YouTube performed when processing the package and whether each item was processed successfully.

To view your upload status files:

  1. Click the My Packages link that appears under CONTENT DELIVERY in the left-side menu.
  2. Click into your package.  You will find your package either in the Processing, Errors, or Successful tab.  Status files will be generated for packages that have completed processing (i.e. appearing only in the Errors or Successful tab.)
  3. Click the Download link under Status File.

Emailed status files

YouTube will also email the status file(s) (one email per metadata file) to the email address indicated in your upload settings.  You can modify the email address for the uploader by going to Uploader settings in your Dashboard.
