Hi. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to create a playlist on YouTube. To create a playlist, the first thing you need to do is go to the YouTube homepage, you can type in YouTube.com in the browser. Once the page loads, you'll see a link on the right that says sign up or sign in. If you already have an account you can click sign in and log in your account there or click on sign up and create a new account. I already have an account so I'll click on sign in. Once you've logged in, you'll see your user name on the top right corner. If you put the cursor over it, it's a drop down menu, you'll see playlist. Click on that and under my account, you click on new and playlist. Here you can name your new playlist, I'll call this one "Music Videos," and click on create. On the right, you'll see, "Edit Playlist Info." You can put descriptions, you can put tags for your videos, you can do a number of things here. And also on the bottom, you'll see "Privacy Settings." You can choose to make your playlist private or public. I'll make this one private and I'll click on "Save Changes." Now, my playlist is created. The next step will be adding videos to the playlist. To do that, you have to go back to the YouTube homepage. You can click on the YouTube icon. I'll just pick a random video here. Right below a video, you'll see a link for playlist, you just click on that and you will see "Add to Your Playlist." Below that is "Select a Playlist," you'll see there are newly created playlists in there. Mine is "Music Videos," I'll select that and click on okay. It says, "The video has been added to your playlist." To go back and watch all the videos you added to your playlist, all you have to do is click on your user name, then you go to playlist and here is the video I just added to my playlist. To play it, you just click on it and it loads. This is pretty much how you create your playlist for YouTube.
