I had to take a deep breath before searching a fix for a serious problem, which I had to face today. Absolutely no help or no fix on the web for that and I don’t know, howcome people have accepted such a stupid mistake. Well, its about getting the Youtube Playlist RSS link to work.
Lets say, you have created a playlist on your youtube and added videos to that. Now, you want to play that playlist on your website. Youtube has an option for PLAYLIST URL.
That looks like :
But when you embed it, it wont play on your website and will display an error message.
And even if we try with RSS FEED URL of Youtube Playlist like this,
It wont play!
So, we tried to debug it what was going wrong with it. Finally we found out the correct way to do it.
Just below the Playlist URL field, you will see another field, EMBED CODE,
<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/p/1C00A20A865A574E?version=3&hl=en_US&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/p/1C00A20A865A574E?version=3&hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="385" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
So, in that above embed code, I see a tag like this, http://www.youtube.com/p/1C00A20A865A574E
So, tried this as the RSS URL :
Voila, it worked!!
