At first, you need to be connected to create a playlist by clicking on the "Account" menu then you can register with facebook, twitter or google or you can use the "Register" form.


Once registered, you just have to go to the "TubeList" menu.

Inside the "Playlists of" your name, you will see the "Add" button. Type the name of the playlist and the description (you can modify it later by using the "Update" button)

You'll see it appears below with various buttons / actions that you can do :

  • "Add content" button to go to the playlist and add / modify videos. If you want to share the playlist in write mode, copy the link associated to this button and share it with your friends.
  • "Read link" is almost the same that "Add content" except that it is just a read mode, no modification will be saved. If you want to share the playlist in read only mode, copy the link associated to this button and share it with your friends.
  • "Update" to modify the name and description of the playlist.

Copy a generic playlist

Inside the "Generic playlists" component, you will see some buttons on the right. Use the "Copy to mine" button to copy a generic playlist to your personal list of playlists, you'll then be able to modify it.

Add videos or listen to playlist

When you click on the "Read link" or "Add content" link, you can listen or modify the playlist. When you're listening to a playlist, it's by design in repeat mode, when the last video is finished, it will restart from the beginning

When you open a playlist, it will start to play automatically. On the left, you'll have the video displayed with basic controls (previous video , repeat this video only , and next video ).

On the right, you can manage the playlist by moving videos, remove one, play anyone, shuffle everything or delete all.

If in "Write mode" (Add content), you can add videos by searching from youtube with the "Search" component and click on "Add" from the list that appears.


You can also add videos from other providers (dailymotion, soundcloud, etc) by using the "URL" component and click on "Add video". Just below this component, you can control the list of videos with the "Shuffle" button (that will reorder randomly the list) and "Delete all" button that will completely empty the list, use it with caution.
