I created a YouTube site and uploaded many Corel authored videos. I want to have people access it, but not have the power to make changes to it. If I give them the URL they arrive at the site with the ability to make serious changes. Is there a way that I can make the site non editable? It is set to unlisted as I do not want it spread widely. If anyone can help, I wouild greatly appreicate it.

YT doesn't have "sites" rather it has "channels". Are you referring to YT or something else?

Unless Corel has authorized you to upload their IP, you're probably violating YT's TOS and may get copyright strikes.

On a YouTube channel, one user serves as the administrator. However, the administrator can invite other users to manage content for the content owner and assign content management permissions. Did you do this? If not that other change did you make?

The following are the steps to add/remove/check access:
  • Go to studio.youtube.com.
  • On the left-hand side, click Settings.
  • Click Permissions.
  • Click Invite and enter the email address of the person who you'd like to invite.
  • Click Access and select the role that you'd like to assign to this person:
    1. Manager: Can add or remove others and edit channel details. And upload, edit, publish and delete videos. Can't delete the channel.
    2. Editor: Can upload and edit videos, and delete draft videos. Can't add or remove others, delete published videos or the channel or enter into contracts.
    3. Editor (Limited): Can upload and edit videos and delete draft videos. Can't add or remove others, delete videos or the channel, enter into contracts or see revenue information.
    4. Viewer: Can view (but not edit) channel details.
    5. Viewer (limited): Can view (but not edit) channel details except revenue information.
  • Click Save

Depending on the degree of control that you want, set the video's visibility to either Unlisted or Private :
  • Unlisted video URLs work like any URL, anyone that has it can use it to view the video, but the URL will not be listed on the YouTube website. You'd have to share the URL (with anyone, in any way you might typically share URLs). However, once you share it, the person you gave it to can share it like any other URL.
    Note: If you set the visibility to Unlisted, a viewer just needs the URL not any permissions.
  • Private video URLs are strictly controlled by you. They won't be listed on the YouTube website. Only users you INVITE to view the video can play the video. If they try to share the URL it will not play because the URL is controlled by you, and will only play for users you invited.
I'd suggest setting the visibility to Unlisted as it's the easiest way to share a video whilst keeping it fairly off the radar.

Thanks for the info. I appreciate your help. I did as you suggested and it worked, but I am trying to make the channel available to people in my community. I created an invite, but it is not permanent. I want a URL that they can click on to get to the screen always. I do not see how an email address would work as I alluded above. How would they use the email address to gain entry from their devices? How did you get this: https://www.youtube.com/user/tletter? I have this: https://www.youtube.com/feed/my_videos
Also, when selecting a video you have subscribe and I have edit as an option. Edit is what I dont want.
What I need is a channel like yours-free of intrusion. If I just use the YouTube URL that I have anyone can destroy it.

The URL for your channel is of the form https://www.youtube.com/user/<YouTube username>, e.g. https://www.youtube.com/user/pepegota
pepegota wrote:I want a URL that they can click on to get to the screen always. I do not see how an email address would work as I alluded above.
Try creating a Playlist and set it to private, and then share the Playlist's URL with users that you've given access to. Only you and those you choose can watch Private videos and playlists. To watch a private playlist/video:
  • Viewers must have a YouTube account before you can grant them rights to view the video.
  • Viewers must log into the YouTube account which the video has been shared with.
  • Viewers need to use a specific link to the private playlist/video that has been sent into their mailboxes.
However, I'd suggest that you see if Unlisted privacy settings can be solution to your problem. Unlisted videos and playlists can be seen and shared by anyone with the link. Your unlisted videos won’t appear to others who visit the "Videos" tab of your channel page and shouldn't show up in YouTube's search results unless someone adds your unlisted video to a public playlist.
pepegota wrote:Also, when selecting a video you have subscribe and I have edit as an option. Edit is what I dont want.
As previously explained, viewers don't have the ability to edit by default unless you've granted them that right.

If true, then you've a misconfiguration.

I cannot create a custom URL' I do not have more than 100 subscribers, etc. See attachment. It looks likke YouTube is useless for me. Thanks again for your assistance. What is this art stuff? Too many to silly requiremens for a custom URL. It looks as if there is nothing that can be done. Anyone viewing my screens can easily destroy them.

Yes, to create a custom URL for your channel, your account needs to:
  1. Have 100 or more subscribers.
  2. Be at least 30 days old.
  3. Have an uploaded photo as a channel icon.
  4. Have uploaded channel art.
pepegota wrote:Too many to silly requiremens for a custom URL.
The requirements are necessary to reduce malappropriate use of channels.
pepegota wrote:What is this art stuff?
Channel Art allows you to customize the look and feel of your channel , e.g. you can see channel art at the top of https://www.youtube.com/user/tletter
pepegota wrote:Anyone viewing my screens can easily destroy them.
This is not the default behaviour, so you have done some unique configuration. Is your channel https://www.youtube.com/user/pepegota ?

https://www.youtube.com/user/xxxxxx is not applicable as I am presently ineligible. It seems it must be created, but I do not qualify for it. I have art in the channel at the top of the screen. I added the photo icon. Also, YouTube says "I am ineligible for a custom name." It is now the time and subscriber number that I must meet.
If I do I will be in or else wait. I see you can buy subscribers, but how good is that? Thanks again for your assistance.

First off I'd suggest that you remove the last image that you posted which shows you email address and your YT User ID.

You don't need a Custom URL on YT to share your channel with others. As seen below, I visited your YT channel using a URL based on your Channel ID.

No, you don't need a YT Custom URL to share your channel with others, i.e. you can immediately share a URL (based on your Channel ID) to your YT channel. There is no need to wait. Once you get 100 subscribers, you can create a YT Custom URL and use that in lieu of a URL based on your Channel ID. However, note that in 2006, someone claimed the YT Custom URL of https://www.youtube.com/user/pepegota so that's not available to you.

If you wish, you can PM me and I can send you your YT URL based on your Channel ID.

It goes to the channel, but it is editable by the viewer-something I do not wish to happen.

Pls explain how a random viewer without a permission that you've granted, can edit your channel.

Please, go to my channel above and see if you can edit it? It says "You are currently managing permissions through a Brand account." What on earth is that? A odd thing: I copied the URL link above and when opened it gives a 404 error. If I click the above link it works-go figure.

As previously explained, NO unless you've given them permission to do so or unless they have your YT username and password. You appear to be accessing your channel whilst logged into YT as the OWNER of your YT channel which of course gives you the rights to edit your channel. However, you can easily test that out yourself by signing out of YT and then accessing your channel as an anonymous user.
pepegota wrote:It says "You are currently managing permissions through a Brand account." What on earth is that?
A brand account is an account that is specifically for your brand and gives you the option to change owners and managers. I assume that you don't have a brand so a standard YouTube channel was all that you needed. Perhaps at some point on your https://www.youtube.com/account_advanced page you exercised the "Move channel to a brand account".

Because your browser has cached info that you've logged into YT before. Hence, either clear your browser's cache or use another browser that you've not signed in to YT from.

However, a user doesn't have to sign in to see your channel, rather, just give your users the URL of https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUtEdm ... a9suuKvcnA and the following is what they'll see w/o having to sign in:
