I want to copy the videos from a YouTube playlist into a playlist on my own account, so that I can modify the playlist to exclude a couple videos and include others - is this possible, and if so, how?

Old question with defunct answers that don't work with the new YouTube interface

Unfortunately, the only way I have found to do it so far is from YouTube Music, which means that it only works with playlists that are available as YouTube Music playlists. I've included the steps in list form, with images afterwards.

  • Find the playlist on YouTube
  • Enter the playlist and locate the playlist title
  • Click on the title to enter the list view
  • Double-click on the address bar: replace www with music (NOTE: it is not sufficient to simply add music before youtube; you must remove the www.
  • Click on the three dots next to "Add to Library" and click on "Add to Playlist." If you want to copy it to a blank playlist, click "Create new playlist."

  • Click on the three dots next to "Add to Library" and click on "Add to Playlist" (appologies for french text)

Three dots


All that being said, it's not the optimal solution, and I'd love it if someone would share a method that would work for all YouTube playlists with the new YouTube interface.
