YouTube has a new feature now, "MIX", which generates an automatic playlist of 50 videos depending on what you last saw. I used it to create a music playlist and worked while listening to it. Now I finished and I went home. Is there a way to save the playlist (other than not closing the browser/computer) so that I can continue listening to the playlist, or listen to all of it from the start at another time and machine?

I was also searching for an answer to this question, but I couldn't figure out how to save it to my playlists and ended up just copying the link and storing it as a comment to my own YouTube Profile. The important part of the link is the code after &list=.

For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkCyhhyWekc&list=RD02VkCyhhyWekc

I hope this can still help you.

while that 'list' component is clearly the identifier for that mix list, there still doesn't seem to be any way to convert from this to the default playlist view. Simply appending it to the standard playlist URL format: youtube.com/playlist?list=... format does not work here, and will only result in an 'oops, something went wrong' page. –  Johannes Feb 18 '14 at 16:02

There is a way to do this using a web app, use http://ctrlq.org/youtube/playlists/ to copy the list url into the box and it will add it to your YouTube playlists, it's the only way i have found so far of achieving this.

hmm, are you sure you're doing this with a youtube mix list? when I tried it with this list: youtube.com/watch?v=atM3ZhF8MVs&list=RDatM3ZhF8MVs it only gave me 401 error –  Johannes Feb 18 '14 at 16:01

I think I found out a way. In the name of the mix for instance Mix - Soul Asylum - Runaway Train - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRtvqT_wMeY&list=RDNRtvqT_wMeY there is a Thumbs Up icon. If you give a like, then YouTube stores in your preferences... To replay the mix, you have to go in the left corner, there is an icon with 4 horizontal lines, you click it, and then you can find a Playlists menu. There you have the mix you liked.

Put it in your browser's favourites while it is playing one of the videos in the list. Works like what Alex described because it has &list= in it.
