Set your video privacy to unlisted so other can view it

An unlisted video is a type of private video that only people who know the link to the video can view it. An unlisted video will not appear in any of YouTube's public spaces (such as search results, your channel, or the Browse page). An unlisted video is different to a private video in two ways, you don’t need a YouTube account to view and there is not a 50 person sharing limit. To change your video privacy options in YouTube, follow the instructions linked below.
