The link below provides the old answer to this question. The new YouTube playlist play interface is very different. So, what's the trick now? Tired of searching!

How can you transfer your playlists from one YouTube account to other?

A pretty fast work around for this in almost as many steps as using the non free 3rd party website, with only a few more clicks than number of videos in the playlist would be:

  1. Empty your watch later list
  2. On the playlist page, starting with the last video on the bottom of the playlist so they will be in order, add all the videos to "watch later" (there is a little button in the corner of the thumbnails). Be sure to select all of them.
  3. Go to video manager > watch later in the left bar (this doesn't show up in playlist view so open up youtube.com in a new tab).
  4. Click the select all box.
  5. Click the playlist drop down, then select add to new playlist. Give it a name and a privacy setting, then click create new playlist.
  6. To check to see if it worked go to playlists in the left bar and open the one you just created.
  7. Go back to your watch later list, select all and click remove to clean up.
  8. Sit back and enjoy your watching your playlist on your TV with XBMC :)

Youtube seems to have removed links to the watch later playlist from the playlist manager, but it is still accessible here: youtube.com/feed/watch_later –  forivall Apr 5 at 20:02

The only suggestion I've seen thus far is to go to the playlist, add all the items to your watch later list, then select them all and select to add them all to a new playlist. It's hackish and silly. I wanted to execute some javascript via an in browser editor to add each video to the watch later list in one fell swoop. Unfortunately jQuery doesn't seem to be loaded and I don't feel like writing the straight javascript. Hopefully someone will write some add ons for browsers to do just that. Or possibly go through the YouTube API.

With YouTube's new interface, there is a blog entry that shows you how to copy playlists in YouTube: Copy Playlist.

It uses a third party service: http://youtubeplaylist.net. It really helps me out of managing playlists.
