This never happens to me but YouTube blocked my Vietnam Trip video from being seen around the world. Apparently it was the Pink Floyd music as the soundtrack that was the culprit. I use tons of music for my dumb little videos and there has never been a problem before. Who knew Pink Floyd had such great YouTube policing power. So what I did was put in a new piece of music where the Floyd was. It's very interesting when you do something like that. It really changes the feel of the film completely. Before my film was very eeire and claustrophobic. Now it's very lighthearted and comical. I used a Henry Mancini piece of music from the 1960's. It makes my video feel like an old Don Knotts movie. If you want to compare the new one to the old version, you can watch the old one here on Vimeo.
