Then, filter the search results by Channel, and find the channel you need.

In the text field, write the name of the channel you’re interested in.

You don’t need to be signed in to your YouTube account to do this.

Tap on the first result – you need the channel, not a specific video.

After you find a video belonging to their channel, do another search using the channel’s name.

  • Tap on the three-dot menu

Based on your search, you might get a long list of results – videos belonging to that channel.

To do this, tap on the three-dot menu in the upper-right corner.

  • Tap on “Filters”
Tap on “Filters”
Tap on “Filters”

After you tap on the three-dot menu, two options will appear – “Filters” and “Help & Feedback”.

Tap on “All”
Tap on “All”

Once you open the Filters menu, you’ll see a new window appear.

You also get several recommendations at the bottom of the window.

The “All” option is first on the list. That’s the default filter for search results.

Select Channel if you want only to sort your search results for channels.

If you choose that, you’ll only see channels based on your search.

For instance, if you were searching for Mr. Beast, you’ll have received varying results with the “All” filter, most of which are videos of Mr. Beast.

But if you change the filter to Channel, you’ll only receive results of channels with that name.

After you select Channel, tap on “Apply” at the bottom to apply the changes.

FAQ

How many videos can you have on YouTube?

An unlimited number. There’s no limit to how many videos you can post on your YouTube channel.

For instance, the YouTube channel Roel Van de Paar has more than 1.8 million videos.

At its peak, the channel was posting a video per minute.

YouTube doesn’t limit you when posting videos on the platform.

Technically, you can post a video every minute.

As long as the video doesn’t violate the community guidelines, YouTube doesn’t stop you from posting it.

And the sky’s the limit with how many videos you can post.

Why can’t I see all my uploaded YouTube videos?

You might have tried to view your channel as a normal visitor after logging off from your account.

But you might not see all your videos there after going to your YouTube channel.
Some of them are missing. Why is that?

Because some of your videos are set to private or unlisted.

If your videos are private, they won’t appear to any viewers. Only the content creator can see those private videos.

The same can be said for unlisted videos. They won’t appear to a regular viewer who checks out your channel.

Only if someone has the link to the video can they find an unlisted video.

So, log back into your account and set the visibility of those private videos to Public.

That way, anyone can find them!
