    A few months ago, I created a simple youtube video for a client. It was created using free account on animoto. Now, my client emailed me that he wants that video to be deleted. My big problem right now is I already forgot the email used in that account. I've tried to log in using the username but youtube says I need to log in using the email on the account. I still remember the password but can't really remember the email. Is there anything I can do to retrieve the email of that account?

    Or, is there any technique were in I can take down that youtube video like logging in to multiple accounts and then flagging that video?

    Help will be greatly appreciated.

    Write them using the appropriate form. It'll take a couple of times since they attempt to answer with canned replies once or twice. Keep writing them.

    I had to do it myself a few months ago, so this suggestion is not something I heard from someone who heard from somebody else's brother... And it worked for me. HTH. ;)

    Yep I did that. The problem is the "channelname" combine with @gmail.com, so channelname@gmail.com gives me a different gmail account which I have also created. Not the one I want to log in. I've tried to retrieve my account by submitting necessary info regarding to my account. It says they will email me within 24 hours. Hope I can get back that account. Fingers cross...

    I believe you don't need the "@gmail.com" after the channel name. Use channelname as your username and the password and it should work fine

    Already did this. The problem is maybe because I have tried to log in a lot of times using the channel name, youtube now requires me to log in using the full email. Here's the error message when I try to log in using the the channel name.
