How To Fix Wrong Video Count On YouTube Account

I know that I am not the only one who has had this issue, so I thought I would share how I fixed the problem.

I had a total of 5 videos uploaded and set to public on my YouTube account, yet anywhere it showed the amount of videos I had showed up as 3. This was obviously a less amount of videos showing than I had on my account or channel.

Fixing YouTube Video Count

  1. Make sure you have a fairly small image, if not you can simply go to YouTube, right-click the logo, and save it on your computer.
  2. Go to YouTube, and log into your account
  3. Act just like you would upload a new video by clicking “Upload”
  4. Instead of choosing a video, select your image or the youtube logo you downloaded
  5. You will get an “Invalid Filetype error” but this is fine
  6. Now set the video to private and hit save
  7. You should now get the right video count displayed in your channel and everywhere else
  8. You can simply delete this video you created
  9. Done!
