On occasion I will be viewing a YouTube video, but it is part of set of videos in a playlist. The URL at the top links to the playlist. This is a problem for when I want to isolate the video in the playlist and only share the one video.

Edit the URL

Notice the URL is much longer than a normal YouTube URL.
list youtube url

The link to the video you are watching has been appended with the information about the playlist.


The URL to the playlist is the URL of the video you are watching appended with “&list…”  Strip everything out of the URL to the right of “&list.” Don’t forget to delete the “&list” also.
