    I've uploaded a few videos just now and everything uploaded fine and the video was processed by YT.

    But when I do a search for it, my video is nowhere to be found.

    Is this YT's way of ghosting me or something?

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    I have never had that happen before. But if you want me to, I can search for your video to see if I can find it.

    I don't think the video is being deleted since the video is still there and everything looks normal.

    The video shows up if I upload it on another IP addy but I've just never seen a video be "ghosted" before.

    maybe its just not been indexed yet when you search for it just go to the channel and look for it there.

    Have you tried searching for it by the filename it was uploaded by? Youtube automatically indexes new videos by their filenames, then after a few hours indexes them properly by their title.

    But when I upload it on another IP the video gets indexed right away and views come in right away as well.

    I couldn't find it by the filename either :(

    Well I can say that I've had videos recently that didn't seem to show up in search as fast as usual. How long a timeframe from upload to search are we talking here?

    hmm.. wait for a few minutes to an hour.. and if you video did not appear yet, maybe it was deleted by YT already..

    If I upload the same video on another IP the video shows up instantly when searched.

    But when I try it on the IP that I've been using, the video does not show up in search at all even after 5 hours.

    Ok, now my videos aren't showing up on a different IP either.

    Is anyone experiencing this at all?

    Just wait for a few hours. Youtube indexes clips with delays sometimes. Recently delays (from my own experience) can be up to 2 days, it sucks. Sometimes uploading from the other IP/computer can help, but it's a bad game. Better continue your normal work and check results in a few hours. And don't go mad even if you don't see your clips in 24 hours. If you don't get a message that your clips are deleted or your account is suspended, then your clips will be online finally.
