Unlisted Videos is a website by Statistical Consultants Ltd, where people can submit, search for, and watch unlisted YouTube videos. It was launched on 28 December 2014.
In 2010, YouTube introduced the option of making videos unlisted. Unlisted videos are like regular public videos, but won't appear in YouTube's search results (except in playlists they have been added to). Like with ordinary public videos, the uploader's subscribers would be notified of the unlisted video (unless the default subscriber notifications have been turned off). An unlisted video can be accessed by anyone with access to the video's URL (such as a link from an external website) or a webpage that embeds the video.
Registration is not required for submitting unlisted YouTube videos to Unlisted Videos. Each submission must include a URL, a title, a short description (a long description is optional), and a set of keyword tags separated by commas. Upon submission, a webpage that embeds the video (or the thumbnail image if embedding isn't permitted) would be generated on Unlisted Videos. The video page would be searchable through Unlisted Video's search function.
Reasons for unlisting videosThere are a variety of reasons for having videos unlisted.
Some popular YouTube channels and official accounts of celebrities, bands, public figures, organisations etc., release some of their videos as unlisted for reasons that include:
In general, an unlisted video from a verified account (of a celebrity, organisation etc.) with many subscribers would be welcome on Unlisted Videos. The main exception is if it is a video that is likely to go public in the near future.
Some people upload videos that are against YouTube's terms of usage, and make those videos unlisted to reduce the likelihood of a complaint being laid and their video being removed. If a video is against YouTube's terms of usage, it would also be against Unlisted Video's terms of usage.
