  • In your videos, find the video you would like to change
  • Click the "EDIT" button
  • In the "Privacy Settings" drop-down menu, select Public
  • Click "Save changes"

The video holder shows a copyright error

  • This video has been flagged as breaching copyright.  This is done by YouTube and cannot be fixed through our application.
  • Contact YouTube support or add a different video to the app config settings.
