How to Create & Share a YouTube Playlist in 7 Easy Steps

Nicole Munoz Youtube

A YouTube playlist is a great way to sort your favorite videos. For example, you can save all your favorite music videos in one playlist, your favorite funny videos in another and your favorite inspiring videos in yet another playlists.

Playlists can also be shared. If you want to share a playlist of 15 videos to your friends, it’s as simple as sending a link.

Here’s how to create and share a YouTube Playlist.

Step 1: Go to a Video You Like

Find a video you like that you’d like to add to your playlist.


Step 2: Click the Dropdown Arrow by “Add To”

Under each video are a series of options. Click the drop down arrow by the “Add To” button to access the playlist menu. Click the “New playlist…” button to create a new playlist.


Step 3: Name Your Playlist

A naming box will appear. Type the name of your new playlist in and press enter. YouTube will confirm that your new video has been added to the playlist.

Keep going through your favorite videos and adding them to your playlist. Add as many as you want in as many playlists as you want.


Step 4: Go to Playlists

To change or share your playlist, click on your name in the upper right corner and select “Playlists”.


Step 5: Select the Playlist You Want to Edit or Share

On the left of the Playlists screen, select which playlist you want to edit or share.


Step 6: Edit Your Playlist

Change the order of videos on by moving them up or down. Click the checkbox next to any video and click remove to delete a video.


Step 7: Share Your Playlist

To share your playlist, click “Share” along the top of your playlist. Copy and paste the playlist URL that appears to share your playlist with your friends!


That’s all there is to it. You now know how to create playlists, add videos to playlists, re-order your playlists, remove videos from playlists and share your playlists.
