Question: How do I delete a video from YouTube Studio?


Deleting a video from YouTube can be necessary for various reasons, such as updating content or removing outdated videos. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to delete a video from YouTube Studio:

  1. Sign in to YouTube Studio:

    • Open your web browser and go to YouTube Studio.
    • Log in with the Google account associated with your YouTube channel.
  2. Navigate to the 'Content' tab:

    • Once you're in YouTube Studio, click on the 'Content' tab located on the left sidebar. This will display all the videos you've uploaded to your channel.
  3. Locate the video you want to delete:

    • Browse through your list of videos or use the search bar to find the specific video you wish to remove.
  4. Delete the video:

    • Click on the three-dot menu icon next to the video you want to delete.
    • Select 'Delete forever' from the drop-down menu.
    • You’ll be prompted to confirm that you want to permanently delete the video. Check the box to acknowledge that deleting is irreversible and removes the video from YouTube permanently.
    • Click on ‘DELETE FOREVER’ to proceed.
  5. Confirm the deletion:

    • After clicking 'DELETE FOREVER', the video will be permanently removed from your YouTube channel. You will receive a confirmation message once the deletion is successful.

Note: Deleting a video is permanent and cannot be undone. Once deleted, the video URL and title will no longer be accessible or searchable.

Additional Tip: If you are unsure about deleting a video, consider making it private or unlisted. This action hides the video from public view without permanently removing it from YouTube.
