List of YouTube Feed URLs

Print Page

YouTube logoYouTube offers many feeds, such as for each category, search term and even each YouTube user has a unique feed URL for their uploads, favorites, subscriptions, etc. But these URLs are not easily accessible from the interface.

So here I am compiling a list of YouTube feeds that you can subscribe to in your favorite feed reader.

 

User Feeds

User’s video uploads

This URL will retrieve a feed containing all of the videos uploaded by a specific user.

Note: Replace “username” in all feeds with the YouTube user’s channel you wish to subscribe to.

User’s favorite videos

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/username/favorites

This URL will retrieve a feed containing a specific user’s favorite videos.

User’s events feed

This URL will retrieve a feed containing a specific user’s live-streaming events. Not all accounts have live streaming. This returns blank if you try to subscribe to a user who has not created an event or if it’s not enabled for their account.

User’s Playlists

This URL will retrieve a feed listing a specific user’s playlists.

Individual Playlists

You can subscribe to a specific playlist’s with this feed URL. Simply replace “xxx..” with the playlist ID you want.

New Videos in a User’s Subscriptions

This URL will give you new videos from your subscriptions.
If you get a “Login required to view this user’s new subscription videos” message, enable activity sharing for your account.

User’s subscriptions

Just like the list of playlists, this URL will retrieve a feed listing a specific user’s subscriptions.

Site Feeds

Search feed

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?orderby=updated&vq=youtube

Subscribe to a specific search term. Replace “youtube” with the term you want.

Category feed

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/-/Sports/?orderby=updated

Subscribe to specific category.

Specific Term in a Category

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/-/Sports/?vq=formula%201&orderby=updated

This will let you subscribe to a specific term in a category.
