"Why are my YouTube videos disappearing from inside some of my playlists? My whole playlist isn't disappearing, just a majority of videos inside my playlists."
There are tons of videos on YouTube and you might have saved some you love to your playlist or bookmark. But sometimes the YouTuber sets the video to private for some reason. Once they do, the video will disappear from your playlists, Liked Videos, or the history. Luckily, Inovideo can help you download private videos of others off YouTube for offline watching without account logging in.
