YouTube: YouTube Playlists

There are two ways to create playlists on YouTube:

  • create the playlist in the YouTube channel

  • create the playlist through the embed code in LibGuides

Generally, you should create the playlist on YouTube. This way the playlist is available on both your LibGuides website and in your YouTube channel.

However, you can create a playlist using the embed code. Understand the playlist is only available through that code.

Default embedded playlist player

The video player below is the default playlist player from YouTube. Note the drop-down menu in the upper left corner listing the videos in the playlist.

Embed Code

Replace the playlist ID with your playlist ID.  Be sure to retain the PL before your player list ID.
