I have a brand account with access to create a YouTube channel.

I uploaded a video and set it to private.

The problem is that I can't share this video with all emails of a particular domain, for example sharing it with everyone whose email domain is @company-name.com

It just allows me to add individual email addresses with whom I want to share the video.

How can I share a private video with emails from a specific domain?

    For clarity: Do you use gsuite or do you just have a brand account controlled by a gmail or another non-google email address? Commented Apr 24, 2017 at 13:36

  • hm. I know this used to be a thing (they announced it here) but since the Google+ identities have been phased out in favor of Google Identities/Brand accounts. Commented Apr 25, 2017 at 10:40
  • Can you please help me out with how to go about solving this problem? Commented Apr 25, 2017 at 14:46
  • I do not use gSuite so I can't test it myself and I cannot find anything relevant in the help articles, sorry. Commented Apr 26, 2017 at 10:13

YouTube has an option for domain restricted videos, but it's only available for Google Business, Education, and Government accounts.

Google Apps users who use their Google+ identity in YouTube will now have the option to post videos that are viewable only by others at their domain. Domain-restricted videos can only be viewed through the web UI at this time. You’ll see a field under the “Privacy Settings” drop-down menu where you can add your domain to the list of people who have access to view the video.

I can reproduce this issue. The problem is the brand account. On your individual account you do have the domain-restricted video option, but not on the brand account.

I do not know if there is way to affiliate the brand to the domain or not.

  • I can confirm this is still an issue as of 2022; you have to use a non-Brand Account to get the domain restriction feature.
