YouTube is a popular search engine and the largest platform for creating, uploading, and sharing video content. Having above 37 million channels, YouTube’s video catalog features billions of videos. It’s the 2nd most visited site in the world, while 37% of all internet traffic belongs to it.
You may also have a channel on this giant platform, where 3.25 billion hours of video content is watched each month. And one or many videos of yours may disappear from your YouTube channel. The same happened with YouTube Content Creation Agency San Francisco more than once.
Why You Can Lose Your YouTube Channel Videos?
YouTube is an independent video database being run under distinctive rules, regulations, and policies. It sometimes deletes videos but always for a strong reason. In most cases, video of a YouTuber is lost due to the violation of the website’s terms and conditions. Resultantly, YouTube takes down the video of the uploader.
However, according to the YouTube Channel Management Agency San Francisco, there could be other reasons as well behind the misplacement of YouTube videos.
1) User Negligence
A negligent user can get its videos easily deleted by YouTube because the website has a very strict approach towards its terms and conditions. If you uploaded an inappropriate video or committed a copyright violation, be ready for the deletion of your video.
2) Issue with Google Account
You can also lose your videos if you deleted your Google account associated with your YouTube channel. If you’ve deleted your Google account, you’ll no longer be able to access videos on your channel.
3) Deleted Mistakenly
To err is human. You can accidentally delete your YouTube videos. Of all the misplacement cases of videos, more than 15% are deleted by users mistakenly.
Whatever the cause of deletion, let’s learn how you can recover the removed YouTube videos.
