Add or remove a video from a YouTube playlist

You can add any video from a YouTube stream to an existing YouTube playlist, or create a new playlist to quickly add a video to it. You can delete videos from playlists in Hootsuite, but to delete playlists or change playlist settings, you must use YouTube.

Add a video to an existing or new playlist

  1. Go to Streams, and then go to your YouTube stream.
  2. Go to the video you want to add to a playlist and select Add to Playlist below the video.
  3. Select an existing playlist. Or, select Create new playlist, enter a title, select privacy settings, and then select Create Playlist.

To view the new playlist in your dashboard, add it as a stream. For more information, see Add a YouTube stream.

Remove a video from a playlist

You can only remove videos from playlists in Hootsuite from within a YouTube Playlist stream.

  1. Go to Streams, and then go to a YouTube Playlist stream that includes the video you want to remove.
  2. Go to the video you want to remove from your playlist, select More Actions below the video, and then select Remove from playlist.
