How do I change the channel link back to http://youtube.com/user/myusername from http://youtube.com/channel/stringOfCharacters ?

I don't see anything in the settings that will allow me to do this.


Google provides a way to set custom URL to your channel. But once you do this it will be permanent and you cannot change it back to your old user name.

  • That linked page doesn't say (or perhaps no longer says) chosen URLs are permanent.
