YouTube Help Requested

Illustration for article titled YouTube Help Requested

My most popular video, which has been up for over a year, just had a copyright claim filed against it this month. I had AC/DC on the radio (which I do a lot as they’re one of my favorite bands) and I guess whatever production company licenses them has been cracking WAY down on copyright claims because all of my videos that include me listening to AC/DC on the radio (dash cam videos) have now been blocked. I would just go ahead and erase the audio, since YouTube gives the option to erase/replace copyrighted audio to unblock your video. Unfortunately, every time I go to erase the audio, I get a message that says “Sorry, an error occurred. Your video edits could not be saved.” So now I’m stuck with audio I can’t change on a video nobody can see anymore. How do I fix this without deleting/reuploading the video?
