HELP! I'm losing my mind.
At some point YouTube had me choose to create a new "channel" linked to a new "google+" profile -- maybe I had the option to keep my old gmail-linked channel -- I can't remember. When I created the new account I used a temporary name, which I now want to change, and cannot figure out how to do so.
Now I have two YouTube accounts (channels? profiles? WTF?) -- which I cannot merge.
YouTube docs say to click "change" next to channel name in Advanced Settings, but that just pops up a link to the G+ profile, where there is no option to change the name at all.
I find having these two profiles very annoying -- YT always asks "as whom" I want to use YT. I just want to use my Gmail-linked profile.
But the second profile now has a bunch of uploads (which I need), and my viewing history.
And for some reason only this second profile gives me the option to monetize content and upload custom thumbnails!
Is there anything I can do??
My understanding of your situation:
You have two YouTube accounts, Account 1 and Account 2. Account 1 is merged with Google+ A, and Account 2 is merged with Google+ B.
To answer your question directly, I'm afraid it's impossible to transfer Account 1 to Google+ B. But I can suggest you another reasonable solution:
You can go to the Google+ page of YouTube 1 and add Google+ B as a manager, which technically equals being another partial-owner of the page with the abilities of doing almost everything with it.
