How to Make a Playlist on YouTube


A YouTube playlist is the most effective method of compiling a customized collection of your favourite videos. You may organize videos by channel or interest, and you can also share your playlist with others so that they can use or change it.

The vast majority of YouTube video may be put to a playlist, but there are a few notable exclusions. It is not possible to add “made for kids” videos to a YouTube playlist since these films are limited owing to the United States’ COPPA restrictions, which are meant to safeguard children, and therefore cannot be added to a playlist.

How to Creating a New YouTube Playlist

Create a new YouTube playlist first, then choose a video that you’d want to include in it, and then utilize that video to build your playlist from there. The procedures for accomplishing this differ slightly across online and mobile users.

On YouTube Web

To begin creating a new YouTube playlist on the YouTube website, locate and open the first video that you desire to include in the playlist.

Below the video are several choices for providing comments, such as likes and dislikes, as well as for sharing or saving the movie on your computer. To proceed, click on the “Save” button on the toolbar.

You may choose whether to save the movie to your “Watch Later” playlist, another playlist, or a new playlist by selecting the appropriate option in the “Save To” box.

To begin building a new playlist, select “Create A New Playlist” from the drop-down menu.

In the “Name” box, give your playlist a descriptive title. The maximum number of characters allowed for this is 150.

In addition, you’ll need to decide on the amount of privacy you want for your new playlist. You have three options: public (which allows anybody to look for and view it), unlisted (which keeps it available but prevents it from being found by search engines), and private (only you can view or find it).

Once you’re satisfied with your selections, click “Create” to begin adding your playlist to your computer.

The video you saved will be automatically put to the playlist as the first video, which you can access from the left-hand menu by selecting “Library” from the list of options.

Just a few steps below this, in the left-hand menu, you’ll discover a list of the playlists that have been named, including your “Watch Later” playlist. By clicking on this link, you will be sent straight to the playlist.

On Android, iPhone, and iPad

Creating a playlist with the YouTube Android, iPhone, and iPad apps is quite identical to the method described above.

You’ll need to first open the video in question and then click on the “Save” option that appears beneath it.

YouTube will automatically add this to your most recently made playlist, or to the “Watch Later” playlist if you don’t have any other playlists to add it to at that time.

At the bottom of your screen, you will see an alert appear. If you wish to add it to a new playlist instead, you may alter the save location by clicking on the “Change” button.

In the “Save Video To” options menu, select “New Playlist” from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner.

Give your playlist a name, and then choose whether it will be visible to the public, unlisted, or private users.

To save your selection, select “Create.”

The video will be added to your new playlist after it has been saved.

You may even do this for numerous films at the same time by selecting the “Library” tab in the lower menu. From there, select “New Playlist” from the drop-down menu.

A list of the videos you’ve recently viewed will show in this section. To add a video, select the checkbox next to the video (or videos) you desire to include and then click on the “Next” button to continue.

A choice of possible names for your new playlist will be displayed. Give the playlist a name and select the appropriate privacy settings (public, unlisted, or private), and then press “Create” to store it on your computer.

Regardless of whether you select to make a playlist while watching a video or from your YouTube library, your playlist will be displayed in the YouTube library.
