    It can take a bit longer. I had this happen when I changed the title of a video last week. Did you ping it after you made the changes?

    It will take some time to get updated on search results. Yeah you try pinging your video. What ping does is it will fetch google boot and make your video crawled soon.
    BTW try searching it after clearing your cookies or try from other device like mobile, tab.
