2018 answer (It's possible some things have shifted around a bit since this question was first asked.)
- Go to the URL https://www.youtube.com/user and click "Saved playlists"
- Open the the top-left hamburger ("☰") menu button, and then click on the word "LIBRARY"
Some understandable confusion appears to be arising because some people are going to their top-right user menu and clicking on either their username or "My Channel", both of which (at least for me and apparently other people) take you to a playlist view
which only shows the text "Created playlists" with no dropdown to reach "Saved playlists".
Delete the "?view_as=subscriber" in your address bar and hit Enter to go to
which should have links to
- Created playlists
- Liked videos
- Saved playlists
(Instead of that hash URL, the url
https://www.youtube.com/user/[YOUR_USERID] with your user ID (see note at bottom) and no brackets also works, or you can even use just use https://www.youtube.com/user which will redirect you to the hash URL.)
Clicking on "Saved playlists" takes me to
https://www.youtube.com/user/[MY_USERID]/playlists?shelf_id=0&view=52&sort=dd which shows just playlists by others that I have saved. I don't know if that "?shelf_id=0&view=52&sort=dd" string is universal.
You can also go to a "PLAYLISTS>All playlists" page that shows both playlists you've created and those created by others that you've saved, at the URL
This can be reached by clicking on the top-left hamburger ("☰") menu button, and then clicking on the word "LIBRARY" (which is easily mistaken for just an unlinked heading). Once again, there's an alternative URL to the hash one, which is
Frankly, the confusion is understandable. I don't see where the
https://www.youtube.com/user/[YOUR_USERID] / https://www.youtube.com/user/ page is linked from anywhere in the UI, and as far as I can tell, the "PLAYLISTS>All playlists" page is currently linked from nowhere other than the word "LIBRARY" in the top-left menu, which looks like it's just a heading for the menu items "History", "Watch Later", "Favorites", etc. Unfortunately, YouTube's top-left and top-right menus are confusingly organized, poorly labeled, and partially redundant.
Note: The YouTube user ID being referred to is a no-space string. This is not the same as the (usually multiword) display name many people have. I don't know if all people have such an ID string. Quite possibly not, because hovering over peoples' names in YouTube reply threads, I see some names are linked to
https://www.youtube.com/user/[USER_ID] while others are linked to
