How To Embed A Playlist of Your YouTube Videos



Here's how to Embed A Playlist of Your YouTube Videos. It presents the most recent video first, and plays your videos in order. A pop up scroller let's you pick and choose which videos you want to see.

STEP 1:
Go to your YouTube page and pick a playlist that you want to embed.

I'm choosing all uploaded videos.

STEP 2:
Click that playlist, and the first video will show up.

On the first video, CLICK SHARE, OPTIONS, INCLUDE PLAYLIST.

STEP 3:
Copy your unique Playlist ID after "?list="

STEP 4:
Make a new blog post and paste in this code, changing my playlist ID code to yours:

Code:
<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=UU6GypOlaNw_4nBGUeXy-_vA"
width="853" height="480" frameborder="0"></iframe>


Here's what it looks like with the most recent video first. Click the little screen icon, it's red in the image below, to have a list of videos come up to select from.

Note:
If you've got a WordPress blog, there are many plugins that give you lots of options to do this.

I did a Google search for this and couldn't find much help. This was the best post, How to Embed YouTube Playlists in a Website, where I found the embed code.

Please leave a comment with any other ways you have found to embed YouTube playlists.

Thanks!
