YouTube question for the techies

Hello! We are back from our wonderful music tour of Europe and I'm in the process of uploading the performances to YouTube. I created an account with my gmail email, have been uploading for a while, and I am choosing the privacy setting to "unlisted" so only those with the link can view. I wanted to test this out since I've never done this before. I shared the link with hubby & daughter. Both could watch the song. And my daughter has a YouTube account so she subscribed. But she can't see any of the other videos I've uploaded. She thinks it's because I have each video set like this.

I'm also adding playlists by country as the songs get uploaded, and she can't see the Playlists either.

So, do I need to go back and edit each of these and make them public so people can see the other videos when/if they subscribe? And I'm also not showing up on any searches (daughter thinks it's because I have no view or anything public). When I searched my name, there is someone else with ,y same name and she has two videos of her giving her cat a bath!!! Definitely NOT me!! And, of course, I can't figure out how to change my user name so I'm not confused with her.

Ugh! Why can't I figure these things out any easier?!?

I don't know the answer, even though I'm fairly techie - spent 45 years with computers, 14 of that programming them - because I am a Youtube consumer but not a poster there.

What I do so know is that I would love to see some of these videos of the kids playing but - boo hoo - I won't because you are keeping them to yourselves....

I posted the link in my 'about me' area. Hope you all enjoy! I still have more to upload from the other countries they performed in, but made a good dent yesterday!

As I learn more about how YouTube works, you should be able to see all the videos, plus the Playlists if you click on my Channel; the London Playlist will play each song without having to start and stop. I've been listening all morning as I try to get more to upload :)

When you see the French Horn player on the left of the screen, that is my handsome nephew. And my daughter is next to the blonde haired girl in the first row clarinet section. She's the brunette. I never did hear why the blonde sat in front of my daughter (who was first chair) but I think it was due to spacing, seating, sharing stands, etc.

Regardless, I was thrilled to be able to see them both so well in all their performances!!
