Metadata Updates Impacting YouTube Premieres


We've now resolved the incident. Thanks for your patience.


We've identified an issue impacting YouTube Premieres. Any metadata updates, including descriptions or keywords, are causing videos to go live early or remove the Premiere entirely. We are working with YouTube to resolve.

In the meantime, do not submit metadata updates to videos in Premiere mode via feed, Vevo Admin, or Vevo Backstage.


Issues have been reported with metadata updates affecting premiere watch pages. Please contact to make any urgent updates when you watch page is live.
