Since a few weeks ago, it looks like YouTube has disabled RSS feeds for playlists. Is there another way to get an RSS feed for a YouTube playlist?

That's because v2 API was deprecated at that time.

To get the updated feed url use this:

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?playlist_id=YOURPLAYLISTIDHERE

  • why RSS validators like rssboard.org/rss-validator say this feed does not validate? Does it mean an RSS feed reader will not be able to work with it?

    Seems to contain just a few videos from the beginning of the playlist, not the recent ones. Apr 2, 2023 at 17:17

If you do this often, this is a bookmarklet for extracting the RSS feed:

javascript:location='https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?playlist_id=%27+(window.location.href).split(%27list=%27)[1]

To use the bookmarklet, create a bookmark and post the above script where you'd normally have your url. Then navigate to a youtube playlist page and click the bookmark. It will extract the playlist id and automatically redirect you to the rss feed.
