I love the "My Mix" feature on Youtube. It chooses better songs than any other streaming service I've tried.

However, Youtube has a major problem: it's distracting. The homepage that shows "My Mix" also shows many other videos.

Therefore, I'd like a direct link to "My mix". I'd put it on my bookmarks, and with a simple click, I can get straight to music.

(The link on the homepage doesn't work AFAIK, because it links to a specific instance of "My Mix", meaning the same list of songs everytime)

(It doesn't have to be a URL either. A bookmarklet or something similar: I simply want a button on my browser to start music)

Alex's answer works if combined with a zero-second video!

There isn't really a satisfying answer for this, unfortunately.

  • The thing does have an ID, namely RDMM. But unlike other things that have this, looking at it in the playlist viewer breaks the site: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=RDMM (It does work for other playlist-y things such as Watch Later). I can try to get YouTube to fix this, but this likely won't get a too high priority.
  • If you search for My Mix, the first result should be your "My Mix". If you can get some muscle memory going, you might get quite quickly to your destination.
    • It might be possible to make a bookmarklet to automate that, but I suppose programming that would be more of a stackoverflow question. I wouldn't know how to anyways.
  • There exists a YouTube Music app for phones which would have a "My station" thing prominently featured. If you live in Australia, South Korea, Mexico, New Zealand and the US, that is.
  • Unfortunately the YouTube Music app has the same restrictions for non-Red users: You have to keep your screen on. – Nathan Merrill Apr 21 '18 at 15:57

Put &list=RDMM&start_radio=1 at the end of the video link.

    Mostze, could you elaborate on your answer? Why does adding those parameters to the URL work? Is it documented somewhere? Could you provide an example? – Vidar S. Ramdal Oct 9 '18 at 13:58
