This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Unfortunately, you won't be able to replace an old video with a new one and keep the original view count, comments or ratings. Instead, you may want to try using annotations or link to the new version of the video from your old video.

    I don't care about losing the view count or comments, thats irrelevant for me! I just want to upload the same video with a higher quality. Is that possible? (all answers regarding this question before has always forcused on view count and comments, thats totally irrelevant for me, I just want to keep the same url!) Possible? – question May 15 '15 at 18:41
  • don´t mind the view count and stuff, for me it´s pretty clear that it´s not possible from that text. you can also read this in several help sections if you do a google search - it´s also in the answer of that other thread. – luschn May 16 '15 at 15:02
