    2. WayBack Machine I called it the Time Machine of Internet  Wayback machine. The name says it all. Using this website you can watch deleted youtube videos with links. Using this you can watch deleted videos online.You can look into the past of any website. Using a way back archive you can look at what a particular website or domain was looking at a particular time in the past.  The Wayback machine keeps on crawling the websites or domains on a time basis. It keeps indexing and storing the data about a website on a periodic basis. This helps us look at the past of a website and how it worked. Using this way you can watch a deleted youtube video easily.
