How can I search YouTube and exclude certain terms from the video's title? For instance, I want to search for "glass" but exclude videos with "Google" in the title.

I'd like to stress that I want to exclude terms ONLY from the title of the video. Searching ONLY the title can be done with allintitle:TERM, but apparently -allintitle:TERM does not work to exclude terms.

Try adding "-exclude_this_text" to search. It worked for me.

Searching for "mvc -asp" resulted in all the MVC videos, excluding those relating to ASP.

Searching for films I used -2014 to exclude 2014 from title and that also worked example: film full sifi -2014.

  • I think a single - should suffice in your searches. That's the NOT operator for Google searches.
