How to Delete a YouTube Video

If you want to learn how to delete a YouTube video, the answer is very simple. There are certain steps you can take to permanently remove the video from YouTube. The first thing that you have to do is sign into your YouTube account. Once you are signed in, click on “account” and then click on “delete.”

From there, you need to find the video that you want to delete. Select the video that you want to delete. This should bring up a box asking you to select the location that the video will be deleted to. Once you have done this, click the check box to submit the removal request. Within the next few minutes, the video will be removed from YouTube. Make sure to follow these steps often because if you don’t, you may find that the video has been re-uploaded. If it has been re-uploaded, you need to try again at the start of the following week.

For me, I needed to delete my video because I wanted to avoid a copyright strike against me, but YouTube did give me a warning. They asked me to send in a counter-notice to the copyright holder that I had violated their copyright, and they would be taken off the list. This means that they could no longer remove me from the site.
