Can't Find a Video you are Looking for?

Only publicly listed YouTube videos are displayed in your search results. Some YouTube video owners hide their videos from search or block videos from being played back outside of YouTube.

You may find your own private YouTube videos in search. You may even be able to play your private YouTube videos in Kaltura. However, participants will not be able to see shared Private videos due to their privacy restriction.
