Create a YouTube playlist from video URLs

If you like to listen to music on YouTube, you may have found yourself in a situation where you want to listen to songs in a specific order. This can be done using playlists, which normally require that you have a YouTube account. But YouTube also offers a neat little shortcut that allows you to quickly put together playlists only from video URLs. Here is how.px.gif

Say you want to put these three videos in a playlist:

Video 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrKc-r12q8w Video 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYhkDEtm0CI Video 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSbljg7OcCU

You now use the IDs of these videos (the part following the v= parameter) and plug them into this URL, separated by commas:

http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids=ID1,ID2,ID3

so that it looks like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids=RrKc-r12q8w,xYhkDEtm0CI,oSbljg7OcCU

Click here to open this link and try the playlist for yourself.

This should do the trick. You can change the order of IDs and add many more, if you want. Just don't forget the commas.
