This page is under construction! Well, yeah, a wiki page is always under construction, but this page is really not ready yet.

What you see here shouldn't be considered an official ArchiveTeam page with official ArchiveTeam content. Both the content and the style may be under construction or debate.

Come back later, or if you have something to add or note, use the talk page or the IRC.

This is a list of online videos, mainly YouTube videos, that vanished without being available anywhere else (e.g. removed without re-uploaded by someone or crawled/uploaded by/to Archive.org).

If you consider a YouTube video or channel as endangered and potentially deleted soon, use the YouTube archival tool or reach out to our video archivists, both at the IRC channel #YouTubeArchive (on EFnet).

Warning signs

  • If a channel puts videos on “Unlisted” or if even one video is suddenly unavailable, this could turn into an epidemy quickly, and more videos, if not the entire channel, could suddently be gone.
  • If a channel becomes controversial and/or faces harsh criticism, such as “TheBaCorner” in 2016 (listed below), it could quickly lose videos.

Volatile channels

Routine Removers

Channels that routinely delete old videos include:


Items will be added to the list.



Notes for page editors:

  • Adding videos from every platform, not only YouTube, is encouraged.
  • In case any of the videos gets recovered, please add them to List of lost online videos/recovered.
    Some data (e.g. comments) might still be lost after the original video has been recovered.
  • The “Date / Time” column can also contain date/time ranges, e.g. “20120206 – 2018”.
  • One can also add inaccurate dates to the “Date / Time” column. Please note it as such. Approximate information is more useable than no information at all.
  • Feel free to add videos to the list of which you only roughly know the contents but not the textual, searcahable metadata (title, description, uploader, etc.), which makes it incredibly hard to find a video, which leads to doubt whether the video still exists somewhere or not.
  • If you are not able to edit the table directly, please add all known information to the dump page.
