I have a large collection of CDs, but when I’m using my PC I find it more convenient to play songs using YouTube. Obviously, it’s time-consuming having to select new videos to play after each one finishes. You can create playlists within YouTube, but the process can be fiddly.
Thankfully, I’ve discovered a brilliant, free Firefox extension called Y+ + that lets you create YouTube playlists easily. First, go to www.snipca.com/15440 in Firefox, click the green ‘+ Add to Firefox’ button, then Install Now. Next, click the red TV icon that’s added to your browser toolbar (at the top right). Type the name of the track or artist you want to search for in the search box on the right. Now move your cursor to the thumbnail of the video you want to add to your playlist and click the *+’ symbol. Keep adding videos this way.
All the videos you add appear as thumbnails in a section at the top. Move your cursor to any thumbnail for options to play the video or move it within the playlist. To remove a video from the playlist, click ‘X’.
