With some videos you might see a red dot in Youtube. As a user, you cannot access this video content and so you will surely ask yourself what this is all about.
When is the red dot used in Youtube?
The red dot on YouTube is often used to indicate prohibited, inappropriate or disabled channels. The red dot essentially means that the channel is currently unavailable without stating the reason for its unavailability.
If you see a red dot next to the channel or a video of your YouTube Creator, it is very likely that you will not be able to access the content offered by him in the foreseeable future.
Fortunately, the review mechanisms on the part of YouTube are very well developed here, so that such channels remain deactivated until the content causing them has been removed by the provider.
Now you know what the red dot is all about
