When uploading videos to YouTube do the video files include metadata that a viewer might be able to see like location and other personal details? Like the EXIF info from a photo.


You can manually add a video location and recording date in the advanced settings:

Video location and recording date can be made public

YouTube also takes Spatial Media Metadata that tell YouTube whether your video is 3D, spherical video, VR180, and so on.

Other than those, no metadata seem to get preserved when uploading.
