Is there a way to search for specific videos in my like playlist on my account?

    Hey OP I was wondering if you tried using good ol' ctrl+F? It searches the entire page for keywords without having to download extra software.

  • Still no way to do it without an extension? Search within youtube is terrible.

If you have a user script manager like Greasemonkey installed, you can use the aptly named YouTube Playlist Search to search through your liked videos playlist.

Quickly search and filter through the items in a playlist (like watch later or favorites). Search includes the title of the video and the user it was uploaded by. It will hide/show the playlist items as you type, empty the text box to show all items.

    This plugin does only search the "visible" videos. So for a playlist that has more than 100 videos, You still need to manually scroll down the browser window (hit the END key repeatedly until nothing new shows up), and only then it searches in every video of the playlist.

  • This becomes tedious after few hundred videos, not to mention like 3k, 10k or more. Liking videos is for the algorithm rather than end-users.

Add videos to bookmarks, with different folders, tags, your custom description, or clip to Evernote/Notion.


click ctrl F in your browser window a search window appears in google browser type in the keyword looking for in the liked videos

p.s make sure you are in the liked videos display page in your browser window

    That won't work if you have hundreds of liked videos.

When I search for specific videos on youtube i go to:

Settings -> (under the category LIBRARY) -> Liked videos.

That should give you your liked videos.

    I believe the OP is asking for how to search for videos within the liked videos playlist, not how to find the playlist itself Jun 7 '17 at 16:51
  • That is correct
