Playlist is not just for streaming music. You can make it for videos as well, even YouTube videos. Making a playlist on YouTube helps you to organize your favorite YouTube videos better. Try using MiniTool software to make a popular YouTube video.

A playlist in YouTube is a list, or group, of videos that plays in order, one video after the other. When one video finishes playing, the next starts automatically so you don’t have to click or search to start playing a new video and you can watch them all or click through to watch only the videos you want to see.

Playlists are usually grouped by subject, such as YouTube music playlist or dancing playlist. Of course, you can also make a playlist of any irrelevant videos if you want, and share with your friends, your fans or just to keep track of your favorite videos for yourself.
