Philipp notes (hat tip to Googlified) that you can upload unlisted videos to Google video now. The webmaster help page for the feature points out that it’s like an unlisted telephone number: the odds of someone guessing an unlisted url are miniscule, but you can send the video’s url to anyone you choose and they can access the video.
This was something that I would have loved when I did my spate of videos a while ago. It’s nice to make a video and upload it in advance. Then making the video visible is as easy as (according to the help page):
- Find the video you want to re-list and click the link that says “Edit Video Info”
- Find the “Access” option and select the “Public” radio button
and maybe waiting a few hours for the change to go into effect. By the way, here’s a simple link to see all the videos I’ve done so far.
