How to Make a Custom Playlist URL on YouTube

It’s fairly trivial to make a playlist on YouTube, whether of your own or others’ videos. And of course, you can make a custom channel URL. But what if you want to make a custom playlist URL – i.e. a custom URL for one of your playlists?

For example, what if you want to turn a YouTube playlist URL like this: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=LL4OYZWjCbysTOrFoIuCaAkw

Well, the short answer is: you can’t.

At least, despite the fact that Google has its very own URL shortening service, you can’t create a custom YouTube playlist URL directly through YouTube. In fact, you can’t actually even create a custom URL through Google’s goo.gl URL shortening sevice at all, all you can do is create a shorter URL.

However, you can create a custom URL for your YouTube playlist by using a different URL shortening service. We like Tiny URL, which is straightforward, easy to use, and allows you to create your own custom URLs.
