YouTube is in the process of creating a new Creator Studio for video creators and some of the basic functions have changed, one of them is how to delete a YouTube video.
In this simple tutorial, we show you how and answer some of the questions as to why and why you might not want to delete YouTube videos.

A popup will appear to make sure you want to delete your video. Remember you cannot get these views, watchtime and enagement back if you delete it.
Normally we don't suggest deleting videos as you are going to loose your views, watchtime and social engagement. However if you have duplicate content or copyright material you should consider removing these if you apply for the YouTube partner program.
