How To Create RSS Feeds For Any YouTube Channel

[Simple Alternative To Subscribing]

YouTube is one of the most visited websites on the internet. The reason for it’s popularity comes from the fact that it features thousands of uploaders with millions of subscribers.

Just like people have their own favorite channels on TV, most people who visit YouTube too have their favorite channels, which they like to follow.

Unfortunately, this involves either subscribing to that channel so that you receive notifications about their activity, or manually browsing to the channel every day just to see if something new pops up.

Thankfully, there is an alternate to both of these options, and it is called an RSS Feed. In layman’s terms, RSS Feeds are auto-generated that help you stay updated with the latest content available online.

This really helps in sorting through the clutter of online media, thus saving you a lot of time when it comes to browsing. This is why most mainstream browsers too give you the change to Integrate RSS Feeds in them.

The only problem is, that it’s not always easy to find the RSS Feed for a website or page. Fortunately for you, as long as we are talking about YouTube channels, there is a simple trick to create these RSS Feeds. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open YouTube on your browser.
  2. Browse to the channel you want to generate the field for.
  3. On their home page, right click anywhere and select “View Page Source”.
  4. Search for this line- data-channel-external-id – and copy the value right next to it.
  5. Paste that value at the end of this URL – https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=
  6. Now copy and paste this new URL into your RSS reader.

With these simple steps, you will be able to easily generate RSS feeds for all your favorite YouTube channels. Have fun.
