Do you have the same for "this video has been removed/deleted"? ;)

What are all the ways to find private videos? (To get the ID?)

(I asked this on Googlified too)

I think there are two (or more).

One is that at first the video was public, as in the Googley Blues case ( then later marked as private. (Googley Blues' YouTube VID: lyOBg3w5vHc)

The second way, uhh, is that you come across a page (say your friend's blog) and found a link to YouTube (or embedded video) but is only accessible to your friend's family members.

In both case the video ID is right in front of you and you just need to look that in the HTML source.
