Watch deleted YouTube Videos

Update – August 9th 2008
I posted this link way back in March of 2007 and since then it’s had over 8,000 hits so I figured it was time to get rid of the crappy ads in the middle of the page and update this place!
The original link I posted to delutube has been removed. So I have done a bit of searching to see if there was something else useful around.
Supposedly FTVTeen works. Let me know how your results are with this one.
Undele Tube was pretty useful at it but when you visit the site it just says “under maintenance right now. Keep checking back.
WikiHow also has some information on how to access recently deleted YouTube videos as well. The Wikihow article is below:

This article is intended to guide you on how to view videos that are usually deleted on the video sharing website,


  1. Go to the search bar.
  2. Type what you wish to search for.
  3. Where it asks you how you would like to sort the search results, click “Date Added”, this will show the most recent videos added to YouTube that match your search terms. You can now see the videos that will soon be deleted. YouTube will usually delete videos violating its Terms of Use in the first 2-4 hours.


  • Videos that are deleted will still be displayed in the search results for a few hours, so prepare to be disappointed if the video you wished to watch has been removed.

I came across a site here that will let you watch videos that have been removed from Youtube, because apparently they are still there, just not listed. Sneaky but cool. Thanks to Vincent Chow.
