YouTube is our daily go-to solution. In fact, many researches found out that YouTube is one of the biggest streaming platforms and users are likely to spend at least five minutes on YouTube each day.
It’s likely that the uploader has removed the video if you see the message “This video is not available anymore” when you click on it on YouTube. This may be due to YouTube instructing the uploader to remove the video or as a result of YouTube deleting the video on its own.
YouTube videos were removed, including Carryminati’s roast video on TikTok. People may still view these videos, though. Read the article below to learn how to watch deleted Youtube videos with or without URLs if you’re curious to learn how.
So let’s go through the article now!
How Can I Watch Deleted YouTube Videos With URLs?
If you have the deleted video’s URL, you are lucky enough to watch them again. Review the methods below to watch deleted YouTube videos with URLs.
Method 1: Use Wayback Machine
If you have watched the video before, then below are three ways best to get links.
- Get links through youtube history.
- Go to the “liked” or “watch later” Playlist to find the video.
- If you created a specific Playlist for the video, go there.
Once you find the video, you can click on it. The video won’t play, but you will find its link. Once you have the link, copy it and follow the steps below to watch it.
Step 1. Go to the Wayback Machine web page.
Step 2. Put the link to the deleted video in the Wayback Machine search box.
Step 3. You will find a calendar on your screen. Select the highlighted year. (The highlighted is the year when the video was published. You will find it on the calendar with a black mark)
Step 4. You will find a date column with snapshots popping up. Select any snapshot.
Step 5. A youtube page will appear in front of you. Click on it to see the video.
Remember, if you don’t find your video, it may not have been uploaded long back, so the Wayback machine could catch it. In this case, you can try your luck with the second method mentioned below.
Method 2: Use Google Search Operations
Once a youtube video is uploaded, it is shared by many viewers across various channels. Most videos are shared on other platforms by their viewers.
Hence even after the video is deleted from its original platform, you can find its copy on other platforms. You can search for these copied videos by following these steps.
Step 1. Get the video URL.
Step 2. Copy the unique video identifier of the URL that is the end part of the URL starting from “v=” (e.g., v=DhvE5w)
Step 3. Paste the unique video part into the Google search box and scroll to find the copied video.
If you don’t have the link to the deleted video, you can search the video’s keyword on the search engine to find it on any other platform.
