    I'm sure someone with super-user / admin rights could but I know for a fact that the tech support agents on the front line can't view them. I know this because I once contacted them about an issue I was having with a scheduled video (so still private) - They replied to ask me to make it unlisted or public because they couldn't view private videos.

    I think that the algorithm or whatever the Youtube checking system is recognise nudity or whatever might be offensive or out of order. I had a problem trying to upload an Orthodox christening, video was deleted (or hold, I don,t know) for nudity as long as children are baptised naked. Since then i permanently have a suggestion in Studio legacy for minors. I didn,t worry as long this was a ceremony and the video had nothing to do with child abuse or anything. BUT. I do not know if there is a permanent record over Youtube in Google, combining user data, browsing history etc. Etc. or if the unlisted or private files flagged are forwarded to the authorities or whatever. As they say. Whatever you upload, instantly is out of your control. A person can understand if you explain. A bot? Not.

    Youtube's systems scan all videos, public or private. I'm sure selected personnel can view them too especially if they get flagged for some reason by the scanning systems.

    Somewhere, (I have no idea where I heard this, so it might be bad info...) I heard that select YouTube personnel can somehow view private videos, and even deleted videos. :eek: I tried to find the source as to where I heard this, and I can't find it.....so take it with a big grain of salt. :/ But it would make some sense since I have heard of people getting a strike from a video after they had deleted it. :eek:

    Employees can't look, but the algorithm scans everything, public or private. If it finds anything, whether it's public or not, you will get dinged for it. If it exists on their servers at all, they scan it.
