Published

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Being the second largest search engine in the world regarding a huge user base, YouTube has got significant exposure in the tech arena. It was started by two former PayPal employees back in 2005, and Google bought them after a year with a whopping $1.6 billion deal.

After the purchase, Google has made a lot of changes to YouTube be it in algorithm or design. There are millions of people who keep on visiting YouTube before buying a product or getting things done.

So, today I am here with a simple tutorial on how to make a playlist on YouTube.

How to Make a Playlist on YouTube

You don’t have to rack your brain to know how to create a YouTube playlist anymore. In this tutorial, you are going to know how to create a YouTube playlist for public and private uses as well. Moreover, I have added a third section in which you will get to know how to create a playlist on YouTube without logging in to your Google account.

Are you ready to explore the process? Here we go.

How to Make a Public YouTube Playlist

Here I will be walking you through the entire process of creating a private playlist on YouTube. Follow the steps given below to get it done.

N.B. – You must be logged in to your Google account for creating a public playlist through these steps.

Step 1: Go to youtube.com and you can see a sign in button on the top right portion of the screen. Without wasting much time, click on the same. You will be asked to enter the credentials of your Google account.

Enter your username (the user part of your email address without a host) and password correctly. You can use the Forgot password section if you can’t remember the password.

Step 2: Now, you have to select a video to be added to the playlist you are about to create. Don’t worry! You can delete it whenever you want in case the selection goes wrong.

Step 3: I hope you have selected a video for adding. Don’t hesitate to open that video for taking further action.

After opening the video, you want to add to your playlist, send your eyes downward to the bottom of the video. Just below the channel details, you can see three options there- Add to, Share and More.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Step 4: You should click on Add to, and it will display a small box to choose your playlist. As you don’t know how to create YouTube playlists, you have to make one.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

In order to make a playlist, you must click Create new playlist option, given at the bottom of that box.

Step 5: At the next step, you will have to name the playlist. It can be anything you like. Make sure you select the Public from the drop-down menu.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

And then, click the blue Create button.

Step 6: You have just created a new playlist and added that particular video into it.

How to Make a Private YouTube Playlist

Things are not quite different from creating a public playlist here. The only step is different from here that you won’t find difficult to follow through.

So, you have to follow the three steps of the previous section I have given. That means you must click on Add to.

Step 7: This step is slightly different here compared with the one we used to create a public YouTube playlist.

At first, you have to put a name for your playlist. Don’t worry about the name. You can choose anything as it can only be seen by you.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Then, choose Private from the drop-down menu. Finally, hit that Create button. That’s all.

How to Make a YouTube Playlist without Logging in

When it comes to making public playlists on YouTube without logging in, things start to change. The process is completely different from both the methods I have listed above.

Step 1: We all know that every YouTube video has a unique ID that can be found at the end of their URL. Here, the first step is to collect the unique YouTube IDs of videos you want to include in a playlist.

(The bolded texts in the above YouTube URLs indicate the unique ids of them).

Step 2: Now, you have to enter this one into your address bar.

http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids=ID1,ID2,ID3,ID4 where ID1, ID2, ID3 and ID4 represents the unique IDs of videos.

Here mine is http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids= PTj9epp2MIM, 1sgeM6DsV40, q37wmlgLAjI, t8aoe213zOA.

As soon as you hit enter after inserting this address, YouTube will create a Playlist for anybody.

My playlist is located at http://www.youtube.com/watch_videos?video_ids= PTj9epp2MIM, 1sgeM6DsV40, q37wmlgLAjI, t8aoe213zOA (The same address I have given here).

This playlist can be seen and played by anyone. Moreover, people can add more videos to it.

How to Delete a Playlist on YouTube

Here, I am going to help the playlists you created.

Step 1: Log in to your YouTube account with correct login details.

Step 2: Click on the three stripes given left to the YouTube logo to uncover more options.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Step 3: Your playlist will be displayed on top. So, just click on it.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Step 4: If you want to remove an individual video from your playlist, you can hover your mouse pointer over that video and click that ‘x’ button right away.

In case you want to delete the entire playlist, use that three dots button to the right of the playlist title.

How-to-Make-a-Playlist-on-YouTube

Step 5: You will get three options there of the first one should be your pick to delete playlists on YouTube.

Step 6: You must select the Yes button from the confirmation prompt.

Isn’t it easy to delete a playlist on YouTube?

How to Delete Spotify Account ?

Published

on

By

If you are a Spotify supporter who has taken a decision to give other music subscriptions a try, you can terminate the premium account at your wish. It inverts the account back to the free service when the current subscription period ends.

But, if a person is sure of not coming back at all, then there is an option of deleting the Spotify account permanently. Given below are the steps on how to delete Spotify account.

Spotify’s mobile applications do not give the facility to delete accounts and the formerly available account deletion links on the web page are of no use as they are not available. So, a person now must contact Spotify Support and then send an email request to the account.

If the account is linked to Facebook, which means a Facebook account is used to access the Spotify account, then the Spotify account must be deleted before the Facebook account is deleted. The steps to delete Spotify account are mentioned below.

  • In the browser, visit the Spotify’s contact form. Go to Spotify sign in using your username and password.
  • As you sign in, there are some categories, which pop up next. The categories given will be subscription, account, logging in, technical issues, and ideas/feedback. Select any category from the list given.
  • A new page pops up, which contains various topics. To continue, select any topic.
  • There will appear a green button at the bottom saying I still need help. Click on that.
  • A typing space called Tell Us More will appear, where the user must type ‘’I want to close my Spotify account’’.
  • To send your query to Spotify, click on Send question. Use your email address on the file to send the query in the form of email
  • You will receive an auto-response sending you back to the community of Spotify. This is just a procedure – do not bother. Just directly reply to that email requesting to delete your account. This message sent by you will reach one of Spotify’s human agents and the issue will be taken on by them from hereon.
  • Keep following up on that email as it may require confirming your identity, date of birth, and few other details. It would be a good decision to whitelist Spotify.com so that emails from the support staff don’t get notified as spam.
  • Within a few days of application, Spotify will issue an email to confirm that the account has been deleted successfully. This is when you can uninstall it from your desktop, mobile devices, laptop, or tablet.

Shutting down the account will restrict you from accessing any kind of information or details stored in it and that includes your offline songs and custom playlists. A person can never again access the Spotify account with the same username.

If you have done Spotify sign up and want to delete the account because of any reason and if the above steps are a little confusing, we have broken down the steps on how to delete a Spotify account into much simpler version because deleting the Spotify account is a complicated status for the users of Spotify.

How to Delete Spotify Account – In Simple Steps

  • On the web browser, go to the Spotify Sign-in into the account using your username and password.
  • Keep scrolling until you reach the bottom of the page. Click on About given on the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
  • You will be given options. Click on Contact form given under the category of Customer Service and Support. The link will directly take you to the customer service form, which needs to be filled with all your details.
  • Select Removing/Cancelling Spotify given under the first drop-down menu.
  • Select Delete/Close my Spotify account given under the second drop-down menu.
  • Later, under the third drop-down menu, click on the option that suits your situation.
  • A text box will pop up, which needs to be filled with the reason for deleting the Spotify account. The reason must include all the relevant information about the details of the account. Explain your desire to delete the account.
  • Submit the above-filled application and your Spotify account must be gone in a few days.
how-to-delete-Spotify-account

These days, it is not necessary to send the staff an email. Just filling up the contact form does the work. Just select Removing/Cancelling Spotify in the first step.

In the second step, click on Delete/Close my Spotify account. And add the reason why you are leaving Spotify in the third step. It has become simple. If you have queries about how to change Spotify username, you can send that request also to the agents in the service.

Texts or images, which can be viewed publicly, are not properly erased even after deleting the account. So, try deleting them or editing them manually before you delete your Spotify account.

If you are confused about what happens to your tracks, Terms of Service/Privacy Policy can get you all the help needed in this field. Are you still unclear about the question? Contact the Spotify services and the human agents are ready to answer your question and help you anytime. Ask about your queries personally.

Due to legal obligations, deletion requests do not always mean that your data will actually be deleted. If you have signed up for Spotify account with the help of third-party logins such as Facebook or Twitter, you might want to revoke all access from Spotify.

As of 2015, Spotify is now available for Android, iOS, Windows, Linux, Blackberry, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Samsung Smart TV, Microsoft Windows Desktop, Sonos, Windows Mobile, and Squeezebox. Spotify is unavailable for Windows 8 as a Windows store.

Spotify uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) in order to prevent unauthorized usage. It gives the Terms and Conditions to its users so that they cannot reverse engineer the application. As of the updated version, it is accessible to play locally stored MP3 and AAC files. But this is not supported in Linux.

The size of the cache and location is configurable. The company launched a new website in December of 2013 called ‘’Spotify for Artists’’, which gave out it’s revenue data and business model. And that is all we have in our article about how to delete the Spotify account.
