Using On Air Google+ Hangouts Breaks My Channel ThioJoe 6/15/12 8:45 AM
I was testing out the google+ on air feature, and I started a few hangouts without actually going on air, but youtube created "videos" of the hangout anyway. I guess it scheduled them or something.  Anyway, now there are 3 blank videos that show up in the related videos section next to most of my videos that i can't delete.

They don't show up in video manager or any playlists, but people can still go and comment on them!  When I go to the watch page and hit edit video, it says unknown video. What do I do?

That sounds messy.  What's the name of your channel so I can pass it along to support?

Is it the one in your profile?

It's "ThioJoe". Also I took a screenshot so I'll attach it here.

I believe this bug arose when I started the hangout but didn't actually "go on air".  When you actually click on one of these, it says that the broadcast will start shortly. But I can't even go to them on google plus to continue the broadcast if i wanted to, nor can I delete them.

I've passed this along to support. Hopefully they'll have a fix soon.

Just wondering, do the "videos" show up in your Google+ video tab by any chance?

It doesn't look like they are in my Google+ video tab; it says "You haven't uploaded any videos yet."  It seems like the blank videos got stuck in my uploaded videos playlist.  When looking at the playlist itself, they show up to me, but not others. However, they still show up in the related videos list on the right to everybody for some reason.  It's definitely a bug of some kind.

I am experiencing the exact same issue. I'd like to delete this hangout that never went "on air" but I can't.

YouTube support is aware of the issue.

Just an update. It appears that YouTube has fixed the issue. Or at least it deleted my previous "ghost videos." Hopefully it's fixed for good!
Re: Using On Air Google+ Hangouts Breaks My Channel clord 6/27/12 11:27 AM
Mine hasn't been deleted...yet.

Actually now that I think about it, it's possible that the videos just dropped out of the "related videos" section but didn't necessarily get deleted.

Never mind, they're still there.  It's not fixed yet. :(

Yes I have this problem too. I hope they fix it!

Guys I figured out how to delete the ghost videos! It was completely by accident. Turns out, the "ghost videos" show up in your video manager ONLY when you're on youtube's mobile site.  

Go here: http://m.youtube.com/my_videos?gl=CA&hl=en&client=mv-google

Then you have the option to delete them. For now they still show up in related videos (but I imagine now that they're deleted they will disappear there too) but at least when a user clicks on it, it says "video removed by user." Hope this helps!

Thanks for reporting your solution!

Weird. My ghost videos don't show up on my video manager...even in mobile using the link above.

Same problem. Mobile site doesn't show it. Normal site doesn't show it. Yet people are still able to see it and comment on it.

The solution he mentioned does not work for me.
