How to get your Youtube username, Channel ID or Playlist ID

This post was written for those who need to retrieve a Youtube username, Channel ID or Playlist ID for our WordPress Plugin, Feed Them Social. These instructions also apply to anyone trying retrieve your Youtube name for anything.

  1. Go to the Youtube Page you want to copy the name of.
  2. Look up in the url of your browser for your YouTube Name, it will appear after
  3. Copy only the name after the url Example You would only want to copy the ThrasherMagazine portion of the name.Screen Shot 2014-10-25 at 7.45.00 PM
  4. The Same applies to the Photos below.This one is for the Channel ID and is the most common now it seems.Screen Shot 2015-05-08 at 2.20.51 AM
  5. This one is for the Playlist ID. Screen Shot 2015-05-08 at 2.25.24 AM
  1. My YouTube page doesn’t have a custom URL yet, so all I see is /channel/(assorted characters here). Any workaround for young accounts like mine?

  2. Hello, having a little trouble with putting certain videos on pages. I want to put individual playlists on different pages. For example bottle trick videos on Flair Bartending page, then have another playlist of videos on another page. I tried the examples of the playlist and only copied certain past of the url but isn’t working after I created the short code. I did get it to work without trying to separate the videos but not after trying to segregation. Is it possible?

  3. We are making an update later today that will allow you to do just that. This new update will allow you to get…

    1. A users most recently uploaded videos ( as it is now)
    2. A users specific Playlist of videos
    3. Channel list of videos
    4. Channel’s specific Playlist of videos

  4. hi.

    i am trying to import youtube feeds in my website but i have the following problem:

    – I go to WordPress – FeedThem – Youtube – Insert API – OK
    – When i then go to FeedtThem to generate the short code, i enter all the details, and when i click to Generate Shortcode it does nothing at all. Why’s that?

  5. Fatal error: Call to undefined method FTS_Youtube_Feed::fts_get_feed_json() in /home/richflairs/public_html/wp-content/plugins/feed-them-premium/feeds/youtube/youtube-feed.php on line 34
