Sometimes you come across a good playlist on YouTube.
But then some of the videos are unavailable and hidden.
This is frustrating, especially if they are part of an interconnecting series.
What do unavailable, hidden videos mean?
It means the channel owner has made the videos private.
How Do You Watch the Private Videos in the Playlist?
There’s no way to watch a private video on YouTube unless the owner gives you access.

You would have to write to him an email and ask for access.
You can usually find the channel owner’s email address in the About section of his YouTube channel home page.
