Set your video privacy to unlisted so others can view it

An unlisted video is a type of private video that only people who know the link to the video can view. 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 from 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 on YouTube, follow the instructions linked below.
