View videos deleted by youtube

Posted on: March 13, 2007

Youtube does not delete its videos right away, it just removes them from normal public view. But with some videos it is possible to call them directly using a script found at delutube.

How it Works: You supply an id of a youtube video that has been deleted and the site tries to pull it from youtube and display it in a viewer.



If you come to a page saying “This video is no longer available” grab the id from the youtube page and try loading it with delutube. This does not work all the time, if it does not delutube displays a message notifying you. Videos get deleted or overwritten by new data on the server after awhile.

A alternative is deletedyoutube which uses the same method.
