Disable upload notifications

When you upload a YouTube video, you can decide whether the video will send notifications to your subscribers. Viewers get a maximum of 3 upload and livestream notifications from each channel in a 24 hour period. If you upload many videos at the same time, or regularly upload multiple videos per day, you may want to disable some notifications.

Disable upload notifications

  1. Using a computer, sign in to YouTube. 
  2. Upload a video.
  3. At the top of the page, click the "Advanced Settings" tab. 
  4. Uncheck the "Notify Subscribers" box.

By deselecting the checkbox for 'Notify Subscribers,' your upload will neither notify subscribers through Notifications (push or email) or through the Subscriptions feed.

It is currently not possible to disable public live stream video notifications. However, unlisted live streams will not send notifications.
