Frequently Asked Questions

Can I reschedule, cancel, or modify a scheduled privacy settings modification if my plans change?

Yes. Use Sunset Videos to change the time/date that a video or playlist is removed from your public channel. Likewise, you can use Sunset Videos or the native tools in YouTube Studio to set a video or playlist public again at any time.

How far ahead can you sunset a video or playlist?

As far as you want. Sunset Videos allows you to schedule your videos' privacy settings years in advance. Not sure there’s a great use case for that but hey, you do you.

Can I schedule publishing with Sunset Videos? No, but you can schedule videos (without using YouTube’s Premiere feature) using TubeBuddy’s YouTube Video Scheduling tools.

Can I change my content's privacy settings in different time zones than my current one?

Yes, you can use any time zone you want.

Does changing a video to private affect its search ranking or recommendations?

Yes. Making a video or playlist private or unlisted means they will be de-indexed from YouTube and Google's search engines. No one will find them anywhere, whether that's the search results or your channel's feed.

However, your audience can access unlisted videos if they know the video's URL, whereas private videos can only be accessed if you invite people to view them.

Can I get a reminder before I change my content's privacy settings?

Yes. You can get Video Scheduling to send you an email 24 hours before a video goes live and when the privacy settings change.

Can I schedule multiple videos or playlist updates at once?

Yes. There's no limit to the number of scheduled privacy setting changes you can make to your videos or playlists.

Is there a limit to how many videos I can schedule for privacy changes?

No. You can change the privacy settings of as many videos as you want.
