If you can't find a specific to create a test, please first make sure it's public or scheduled then hit the "Update All Video Data" button.

If that doesn't work then please follow these steps:

  1. Scroll down to the channels table

  2. Click on the "Manage" button under missing videos in the row of the channel that is missing the videos

  3. Put the videoID or video url of the missing video in the input box

  4. Click submit

  5. Then go to the "New Test" page https://app.thumbnailtest.com

  6. Click on the "Update All Video Data" button

  7. Then try searching for one of the missing videos

Repeat steps 4 & 5 if you have more than one.

What causes this?

Due to the way we fetch the list of the channel's uploaded videos it unfortunately has a known long-lasting Youtube API bug where it may not return all of your videos.
