How to Access Recently Deleted YouTube Videos. There is nothing more frustrating than searching for a popular YouTube video only to discover that it has recently been deleted (most often for copyright purposes). Luckily, it does not take a master hacker to access these newly departed gems. It can be easy to find these recently deleted YouTube videos.
Go to YouTube's website and hunt your query using their search tool.
Click on the video's highlighted title. Do not be discouraged when you see the "recently deleted" message.
Copy the video's YouTube ID using a pen and paper or the copy and paste tools on your computer. This is an especially important step, as the upcoming site does not have an organized search function.
Go to the YouTube Infamous site. You will be directed to a quasi-taboo site known as Delutube. This site is designed to provide access to recently deleted YouTube videos, as long as the deleted content remains on the YouTube server.
Input the YouTube ID for the video you want to watch.
Tips & Warnings
- Using Delutube, it is also possible to access a number of random deleted YouTube videos.
- If you input a YouTube ID and still have no luck, it is most likely because the video in question was permanently deleted from YouTube's server, and will not be available for retrieval.
- You can beat YouTube's deletion team to the punch by sorting your search list by the "Date Added" option. They will display the most recent videos, and you will be able to see when and if they will be deleted. Most videos that violate terms are eradicated within six hours.
