How to Search and Download YouTube Playlists

While there are multiple online services available that can fetch videos, they are often filled with ads, have limitations on downloads and quality and overall provide a bad experience. Moreover, only a few of them supports downloading YouTube playlists. As such, 4K Video Downloader does a fantastic job of downloading videos and playlists without any constraints.

What is a YouTube Playlist?

YouTube Playlist is a simple collection of videos on a topic stitched together. Once you start a video from the playlist, it will automatically play the next video relieving you from the manual task of searching and playing again and again.

Anyone can make a playlist as they are a convenient way to organize videos. All you need is to use the “Add to” button at the bottom of the video to create or add that video to a playlist, then use this page to edit the name, description or privacy. Apart from creating your own playlists, YouTube also gives you the ability to save playlists created by others.

How to Search for YouTube Playlist?

Generally, when you search for any video, YouTube often shows you playlist in the results with the number of videos in the list. To specifically search for only playlists, use the operator “,playlist” along with the search query or apply the filter along with the keywords on YouTube.
