YouTube Video Privacy Options

If you want to add video to your website or blog, we recommend using a video hosting service like YouTube. WordPress comes with a feature called auto-embeds which allows you to simply paste a link to a video hosted on YouTube, Vimeo or other supported hosting sites to embed the video on your site.

YouTube Comment Options

By default, YouTube allows comments on all public and unlisted videos uploaded. You can turn them off, hold potentially inappropriate comments for review, or hold all comments for review. This gives you more control over what is posted about your video.

  1. Sign in to YouTube on a computer.
  2. Go to Creator Studio > Video Manager.
  3. Select the box next to any of the videos you want to manage.
  4. At the top of the screen, click the Actions menu.
  5. Select More actions > Comments.
  6. Choose the setting that works for your use.

Comments are not available on private videos. If you want to allow comments on a video that's not publicly available, post an unlisted video instead.
