Per Google’s recent update, unlisted YouTube videos from before January 1, 2017 will be made private on July 23, 2021 unless a user opts out on through this form. Check if your runs are at risk at speedrun.com/runsatrisk
This essentially means that any speedrun submitted to Speedrun.com before 2017 as an unlisted video will become permanently unviewable unless a user:
- Opts out of the change,
- Changes the share setting to public, or
- Reuploads the video as an unlisted video and updates the url link on Speedrun.com. Please note, this will cause the run to be resubmitted for verification so we recommend opting out of the change or changing the share settings instead to avoid confusion.
We have created the Runs At Risk page allowing Runners and Game Moderators to check whether their own submitted runs or runs submitted to their games are potentially at risk of becoming unviewable. For any run at risk, we highly recommend either opting out of the change or changing the share setting to public.
