Embedding Youtube Playlists

  1. Sign in to Youtube
  2. Find a video that you like
  3. Click the link that says Playlists
  4. Select an existing playlist, or if you do not have a playlist already, click the button that says Add
  5. Fill in the details for your new playlist and click the button that says Save Playlist Info
  6. Find another video you like that is similar to the first video, and click the link that says Playlists - selecting your new playlist from the list, and then click the button that says Add.
  7. Keep doing this, and create a collection of videos
  8. When you are finished starting up your playlist, view your Channel by clicking your Username in the top right of the Youtube website
  9. As you find videos you like on YouTube, click 'Add to Playlist' under the player to add them to your list. You can change the order of the videos in your playlist by returning to the 'My Playlist' page.
  10. The easiest way to embed a playlist is to create a custom player. Go to your YouTube account by clicking the link in the top right that says Account.
  11. Click "Custom Video Players", then "Create Custom Player". Select a color and format for your player, and then choose what is going to play in it—you can choose a playlist, your own uploaded content, or your favorites—and then click the "Generate Code" button.
  12. Copy and paste the code into your blog entry or web page
