YouTube: My video was flagged inappropriately

A simple guide for solving this common YouTube problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman

Hi I think this explanation can help. When someone flags a video the video is reviewed by a group of YouTube employees who determine one of three courses of action. a) If the video is within the YouTube community guidelines and terms of use, the video stays on Youtube b) If the video is within the YouTube community guidelines and terms of use, but may not be appropriate for all audiences, they will place an age restriction on the video c) If the video is determined to be outside the YouTube community guidelines, the video is removed immediately So you will need to wait to see what happens. Just because it was flagged doesn't mean this is over by any means. Good luck!
