Playlists are organized in two different levels, similar to Channels:

Playlist Overview#


There is an overlap in functionality with index playlists on channel:

  • Subscribe to a playlist of the playlist contains videos from mixed channels.
  • Subscribe to a playlist if you only want to add a few playlists from a chanel.
  • Use index playlists on channel if you want to add all playlists of a channel.
  • Avoid subscribing to a playlist if the channel already monitors that playlist.

Accessible at /playlist/ of your Tube Archivist instance, this Overview Page shows a list of all playlists you have indexed over all your channels.

  • You can filter that list to show only subscribed playlists with the toggle.

You can index playlists of a channel from the channel detail page.

You can search your indexed playlists by clicking on the search icon search icon. This will open a dedicated page.
