I have something like that https://pastebin.com/ssmtZhW2 how do I convert this to a YouTube playlist?

also, you can create it manually if you take this URL and add comma separated IDs:

1. https://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids= like:

2. https://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids=AwyRYse4kss,QoitiIbdeaM,drlB2RT_XiA,etc...

3. then paste it into the browser's search box and hit ENTER

4. this will create a special playlist URL called "Untitled Playlist" where you will have your videos
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rL1HcFc-Fg&list=TLGG2e3mUQob0B0wOTA5MjAxOA

SIDE NOTE: unfortunately there is one downside... such playlist is limited only to 50 videos

5. to save such playlist, be sure that you are logged in into youtube

6. add &disable_polymer=true at the end of the URL and hit ENTER

https://youtu.be/watch?v=0rL1HcFc-Fg&list=TLGG2e3mUQob0B0wOTA5MjAxOA&disable_polymer=true

7. then, somewhere around Subscribe button will appear + Add to button (or 3-dot/3-slash button with plus sign)

0

8. select Create a new playlist name it and press Create button

9. done!

  • well, I finally tried it and i have problems with saving my playlist. I can't see what you're talking about in step 7 :( – 4Lajf Sep 17 '18 at 14:40
  • I agree with @4Lajf. I can play the videos, but I see no way of saving the playlist. If I +addTo, only the first video is added. – Charles Plager Feb 8 '19 at 17:42

  • @MARKMYANSWER I don't see the same (maybe because videos are unlisted?) When I add to a play list, only the current video gets added (so, not very helpful). – Charles Plager Feb 10 '19 at 21:13

  • copy these IDs extracted from URLs and paste it there
  • press Run my list! button and you are good to listen

NOTE: 50 video limit as well

  • Is there anyway to SAVE the playlist? – Colleen Kitchen Jan 28 '19 at 7:30
  • @TIXBRANCO using roll.io no, but you can save it as a bookmark – user0 Jan 28 '19 at 12:32
  • Is it me or that site is broken now? It keeps reloading with a default playlist after almost every action – Diego V Aug 18 '19 at 18:03
  • @DiegoV works well at this side – user0 Aug 29 '19 at 0:23

SPREADSHEET YOUTUBE PLAYLIST GENERATOR:

here I wrote a simple spreadsheet playlist generator: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ just add youtube links in any desired order and press that red text in cell B1 to play it.

  • it doesn't let me add a url or am I missing something. – Colleen Kitchen Jan 28 '19 at 7:32
  • @TIXBRANCO make a copy. File > Make copy – user0 Jan 28 '19 at 12:30
  • Thanks I did. It works great. I made a shared spreadsheet for a group I'm in. Would you like any social proof or acknowledgement, if so PM me a link that I can promote to the group. I did note that the playlist link generated from the spreadsheet does not work the same way one of your own playlists work if you put it in one of the playlist conversion websites. I was messing with that so my group could copy the list but that doesn't seem possible with what I've tried so far. – Colleen Kitchen Jan 29 '19 at 16:43

A small python script

  • to extract all the youtube links from the text file you.list.
  • open the browser (in background) with all the videos - urllib2.urlopen(listOfVideos).
  • gets the new playlist link - response.geturl().
  • opens the web browser again to allow the user to edit the playlist properties webbrowser.open(playListURL).

*tested on Google Chrome

import os, io
import webbrowser
import urllib2

inputFileName = 'you.list'

def ReadMultipleDataFrom(thisTextFile, thisPattern):
    inputData = []
    file = open(thisTextFile, "r")
    for iLine in file:
        if iLine.startswith(thisPattern):
            iLine = iLine.rstrip()
            # print iLine
        if ('v=') in iLine: # https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBcDeFGH
            iLink = iLine.split('v=')[1]
            inputData.append(iLink) 
        if ('be/') in iLine: # https://youtu.be/aBcDeFGH
            iLink =  iLine.split('be/')[1]
            inputData.append(iLink)
    return inputData

videoLinks =  ReadMultipleDataFrom(inputFileName, "https")              
# print videoLinks

listOfVideos = "http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids=" + ','.join(videoLinks)
# print listOfVideos

response = urllib2.urlopen(listOfVideos)
playListLink = response.geturl()
# print playListLink

playListLink = playListLink.split('list=')[1]
# print playListLink

playListURL = "https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list="+playListLink+"&disable_polymer=true"
webbrowser.open(playListURL)
