Playlists aren’t just for streaming music, they’re also for watching videos. That’s where YouTube - a video-sharing platform - becomes invaluable. It’s the only app that will allow you to play full music videos. However, if you use another music service on a daily basis (think Spotify or Apple Music), moving your playlists to YouTube might seem like a tedious task. In this article, we’ll show you an easy way to transfer your playlist from any music platform to YouTube. If you want to enjoy your favorite songs with music videos, read on.
WHAT IS A YOUTUBE PLAYLIST
A YouTube playlist is simply a collection of videos that play in a specific order. YouTube will automatically play the next video in the playlist without you needing to take any action - as one video finishes, other loads up. A YouTube playlist works exactly the same as music playlists on Spotify, Apple Music, or Tidal, but you get to enjoy a complete listening and viewing experience. This makes YouTube a fantastic tool if you want to watch video clips from your favorite songs.
You can make a playlist either on YouTube.com or on the YouTube mobile app for iOS or Android. All created playlisted are public by default, but you can always hide a playlist from other users and set it to private.
CREATE YOUTUBE PLAYLISTS FOR FREE
You can make a YouTube playlist for free. However, for more demanding users, the platform rolled out a premium subscription. With YouTube Premium, you can watch videos without ads, download videos for offline use, and play them in the background on mobile devices. What’s more, YouTube Premium includes a free subscription to YouTube Music Premium. However, the prices for premium membership are a bit on the expensive side - they run for $12.99 per month.
WHY CREATE YOUR OWN PLAYLIST ON YOUTUBE
Imagine you want to play music videos on YouTube during a house party. There are plenty of public party playlists out there, but you want to play YOUR playlist - the one you curated so meticulously. However, you keep all of your favorite songs on one of the most popular streaming platforms like Spotify or Apple Music. What are you going to do? Manually add each track to YouTube? Sure, it’s some kind of a solution but you’ll end up spending lots of time recreating a playlist instead of doing things you actually enjoy.
Fortunately, you can make a Youtube playlist on the fly with the FreeYourMusic app. FreeYourMusic helps to transfer music from and to any major streaming platforms, for example from Spotify to Youtube. Here’s a list of all the services we support and possible transfers.
HOW TO CREATE A YOUTUBE VIDEO PLAYLIST
You can easily convert your song playlists from any platform to video playlists on YouTube. When you transfer playlists from services such as Spotify to YouTube, our app matches the title and artist, automatically pulling their music videos.
Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to convert your playlist to YouTube and create music videos for your favorite songs:
- Open the app and connect to your source platform - the streaming service on which you keep your playlists. Next, connect to your YouTube account and choose it as the destination platform.
- Select the playlists for which you want to generate music videos on YouTube. With the trial version of FreeYourMusic, you get to move up to 100 songs and 1 playlist.
- FreeYourMusic will get the information on track titles and scan for the same records on YouTube. The waiting part might take a few minutes, depending on how much music you’re migrating.
- Once the transfer is done, you’ll get a confirmation showcasing the number of tracks moved successfully. We’ll also notify you if any songs are missing from the transfer.
