Create your playlist on YouTube

Published: Oct 27, 2013, 08:06 IST | A Correspondent |

We are sure the 20- somethings and the younger readers are laughing. But for the slightly older generation, not having grown up in the virtual world, a playlist of several dozen videos in a palm- size gadget may still sound incredible. Here's a step- by- step guide on how to keep your favourite YouTube videos under one page and access them on the fly. Or even share it with your colleagues

First things first. We know this may sound obvious to most, but why take risks? Sign in to YouTube with your Google/ Gmail account to begin creating your playlist

>> Click on your YouTube username on the top right- hand corner. It will open a drop- down tab with a lot of options, including Favourites,
Watch Later, History and so on. Click on the ‘ Video Manager’ icon under the Youtube section.

>> Once on the ‘ Video Manager’ page, select ‘ Playlists’ from the menu on the left side of the page.

>> On the playlist page click on ‘ Create New playlist’ on the top right side of the page. Here you can give a title and description to the playlist. For instance, if you are a Manna De fan and want to create a special playlist of the master’s best songs/ videos, give it a “ Tribute to Manna De” title and add a few lines as to why you did the playlist suddenly, so that those you share it with later, get a sense of what prompted your choice. Once done, click on ‘ Create Playlist’.

>> After the playlist is created you can add your favourite YouTube videos by their URLs or hyperlinks. Alternatively, go to the video page and click on the ‘ Add to’ button below the video, which will allow you to directly add video to your playlist. Click on ‘ Done’ once you have finished adding videos to it.

>> You can go back and edit your playlist by changing the order of the videos or add/ delete videos.

>> You also have an option to make your playlist Private or Public depending on whether you want other YouTube users to view it. This option is available on the playlist creation page.

>> To access your playlist, click on your username after you login in to YouTube. The playlist will be added to the same drop down tab.
