YouTube videos that were once accessible on the Wayback Machine have since disappeared.

There’s an old Minecraft Let’s Play on YouTube from 2011 that I used to be a huge fan of, but all the episodes have been made private (since around 2017/2018). I’ve been trying to recover as many of these videos as possible from the Wayback Machine, with moderate success. Some videos were archived, and others weren’t.

Recently, I discovered that one of the episodes that I couldn’t save was actually available on the Wayback Machine back in early 2019. I have photographic proof of this. For some reason, the video has disappeared since then and can no longer be watched. The page is still there, but the video itself isn’t. Even when I search for the video’s URL directly, it’s no longer there. I have a strong feeling that the same thing has happened to many of the other episodes. This seems to be a major fault with the Wayback Machine.

Here is the video’s page:


And here is the video directly (if it was still there):


Why might the video have disappeared? Is it still stored in the internet archive somewhere but has somehow been lost? If so, is it still possible to retrieve it?

Thank you for your help.

*UPDATE: From what I’ve gathered, it seems that a lot of videos on the Wayback Machine have been popping in and out of availability. The most important thing to know is that, if the webpage of a YouTube video has been archived, then the video has as well. It just may not be viewable at that time. You could try waiting until it comes back, but there’s no knowing when this will happen and I don’t think it’s guaranteed that it ever will. Another option might be to email the admins directly to fix the page. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’ll let you know how it goes when I do.*

  1. In 2017 YouTube changed how the urls for unlisted videos are generated. It’s possible many of these preciously unlisted videos were automatically made private during that time. The same this is happening in 3 weeks with unlisted playlist (they will automatically be made private).

  2. Wayback archives youtube videos? How do they have the resources to do that?

    I always thought the video content was still coming from the live Yt site while the surrounding html is archived.

  3. Also youtube changed how unlisted videos work, all of then are now private.

  4. I’ve rarely been able to recover youtube videos from wayback, I actually only ever got one once (I was overjoyed). It makes sense though, they could never save every youtube video. There’s far too many. (Isn’t it 48 hours uploaded per minute now?)

  5. This seems to be a quirk of the wayback machine. I’ve been scraping a certain set of URLs for over a year now and I have seen tons of listing come in and out of visibility. The only way to get them back seems to be to just wait.

  6. So what happened is(if I’m not remembering wrong),I got a email from Youtube stating they are updating some system,and if the content creator having some video unlisted they will automatically private unless the creator manually make them unlisted again

  7. This is exactly why everyone should be full-ripping any channel they like. Especially now that inactive channels will be terminated after 1 year. The Internet Archive is not good enough, not thorough enough, and most importantly cannot be trusted. You must download and store the videos yourself. **youtube-dl** is the recommended method to download.


    Remember, YouTube will not be around forever. It is constantly evolving. At some point we will look at the product and ask, is this even YouTube anymore. And then it won’t be called YouTube anymore. It’s happening sooner than we think.

    So I reiterate, full-rip any channel you like **right now**. Especially if it has not had an upload in over a year.



  8. hey whatever happened to microsoft looking into storing data inside crystals? it would be interesting to figure out a more permanent but fast way to store and retrieve data. i think they were using laser cutters to do it. at this rate, i would love for some new storage technology to come out, something that is easily duplicatable. but overall hard drives are not that expensive, i am really surprised people are just deleting history right in front of our eyes.

  9. That’s strange. It’s not the case for all of them as [this one](https://web.archive.org/web/20150222000847/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXphqpx8Zkc) (?v=eXphqpx8Zkc) can still be viewed.

  10. it’s partially offtopic, but I’ve just discovered that you can select Internet Archive for donation if you buy games on HumbleBundle.

  11. It’s so sad. As long as it isn’t hurting others, it shouldn’t be taken offline. I get that pornhub had to do something, but this is retarded.

  12. Though I am glad to see this thread catching on, I thought I had established that videos were disappearing off of Wayback [one year ago on this thread here](https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/gjo3qv/a_rift_in_time_a_mission_to_nab_inaccessible).

    To u/Rhondson, there is an [alternate method](https://www.reddit.com/r/WaybackMachine/comments/mr8esn/youtube_video_that_is_now_lost_media_has_an/gulmm0e) to request video resources for YouTube directly, however much like u/Top_Hat_Tomato I didn’t have much luck [either](https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/odmiuc/youtube_videos_that_were_once_accessible_on_the/h41cc4q).

    There is also a “[super secret](https://archive.org/details/archiveteam_youtube_rewind&reCache=1)” collection for some YouTube videos, but I doubt it’s there. At this point you would be better of consulting another YouTube archive if you are still looking for the video. Best of luck!

  13. Was it available after the video was made private? It’s possible Wayback just saved the metadata of the video and was relying on YouTube to actually serve the video content.

  14. I’ve been looking for these videos as to rewatch them sadly, no luck

  15. if you find a way to access those videos, post them, i want to rewatch those videos too

  16. I remember retrieving multiple videos by tinkering with the chrome developer console. I could never just watch videos straight up in waybackmachine

  17. I tried the normal backup method of “https://web.archive.org/web/20110606025447/http://wayback-fakeurl.archive.org/yt/j4qBhU9HPns”, but that didn’t work either.
