Why can’t I make my YouTube video public? One of the ways we try and do this is by prohibiting the use of unrelated or misleading tags. If your video is identified as violating our policies, it may be locked as private. When a video is locked as private, it will not be visible to the public. If a viewer has a link to the video, it will appear as unavailable.
Are YouTube videos automatically public? By default, videos that you upload to YouTube are set to public. This way, they are available for anyone to see and comment on. If you prefer, though, you can choose to make a video private.
Can a private YouTube video be made public? No. If you’re able to appeal, and your video is successfully reviewed, you will be able to make it public. However, it will not be made public automatically. Videos stay private until you change the video’s privacy settings.
