Changing Youtube account linked to Googlemail account

Mawallace used Ask the Experts™
Anyone out there now the answer - Google have not answered my question?!!

My Youtube account is currently linked to my wife's gmail account.

for various reasons, she wants to remove this, and connect it to mine instead.

I have no problems with this - but I do not want to have to reload all the videos etc.

Is there a way to link my youtube account to mine?

thank you

I think the best is to create a new account try to transfer the settings from the existing one.

It seems the only way to do this is manyally. :-(
