I have had a personal YouTube channel with some personal videos (me playing guitar) for a while but recently I started to make business videos and uploading them to that same channel. There are about 30 videos total now so it would be hard to download and re-upload them. Plus, the videos would lose their ranking in YouTube.

Is there any option for me to move the personal videos out of the existing channels into a new one?

    Unfortunately, YouTube doesn't support transferring videos from one account to another one - see this for the official word on that.

  • The above comment seems like the answer; would you be able to add it as one?

While you cannot move videos between channels, you can download all your videos in the original quality (ie before the YouTube compression) via Google Takeout and then reupload them in bulk (though only 50 per day, after that, the upload rate gets slowed down to one more video every half an hour or so).
