    I am using the second method of sharing a private youtube video and people are saying that they are not getting the email with the url.

      Maybe there is some problem while you sent them a private video. You can try again. Make sure you are entering valid Gmail ids there.

    Hello Rachit Mangi. Thank you for this valuable information. I have two questions regarding private youtube videos. Is there a limitation on the number of persons to share a private video with? Is it possible to cancel permission of viewing a private video to a particular user?

    • Rachit Mangi Reply

      Hello Lefteris, You’re welcome. As per my knowledge, you can share private youtube video with maximum 25 peoples. However, You can try for more if Youtube allows. Regarding canceling permission, I think you can cancel it by removing his/her email id from sharing.

    Have two questions:
    a) Can I share videos to viewers who have not a google account (yet)? Is google verifying the email addresses add in “share video privately” field before saving, so the entered emails MUST belong to an existing google account to save the new recipients?
    b) Have added new viewers into the “share video privately” box but when checking the below “Notify Via Email” button and save the newly added recipients they (non of the listed emails addresses) receives an email notification. why this?

    • Rachit Mangi Reply

      Good questions man. Please check the answers below.

      a) You can’t share videos with viewers who don’t have a Google account. Invitees must sign in to their Google Account to view your private video.

      b) You’ll need to add the Gmail address of the viewers to whom you want to share your private video. Make sure you add a comma (,) after each Gmail address is entered. After that, you can check the “Notify via email” checkbox and click on Done. An email will be sent to all invitees.

    If I share a video with a specified person who has a Google account, but don’t sent them an email (I didn’t want them getting 10 emails for the 10 clips we’re sharing) how on earth do they get to see the video ?

    If they go to my channel it isn’t listed.

    • Rachit Mangi Reply

      I think you can share URLs of private videos with them via any social media.
