So this evening I will try going through the channels from big to small instead of the other way around, like I did before. Then I'll see early on whether it fails, because it could very well be that it tries to detect which one of the 2100 videos of the biggest channel are not already on my 700/1400 video playlist and then it either takes too long to do anything useful afterwards or it crashes. I had something similar before. Did I mention yet that things like "switching copy from/to YouTube" or "save at least a bit so that the rest works" or "make a new list" randomly not just fail, but aren't even attempted when clicking the respective button? And that the UI is really confusing? And that it already took me a week to try to make this playlist? Yes, YouTube and it's stupid limitations has stolen the majority of my weekend and the afternoons around it, including running PCs the entire night for absolutely zero effect. Why can't things just work for once?
Update: Finally managed to add the first batch of 4760 videos and now I have to sort out before putting the rest on it. But since that stupid site requires some secret combination of toggling edit/play, reloading, deleting and starting new, naming or dragging stuff, saving and all the other action, that won't be fun. I still haven't found out what exactly makes me finally able to use the site, it's always just luck.
Another update. Keeping it short, because Devrant just discarded everything when I wanted to post. I can create a new playlist on that site, put that on WL and it sort of works with a few tricks. Sorted out everything afterwards and now there are ~3000 videos on the list. Still some channels in bookmarks left, but I'll save that for another day.
Fabian1153181dAnother update, because I just went back to this post: Nowadays I don't even bother with the YouTube website at all anymore. If I have to add lots of things to a playlists automatically, I use this: https://github.com/Elijas/...
And otherwise I simply put the link into youtube-dl and download it all. File managers and VLC work sooo much better than anything on the YouTube website, especially since they keep removing features all the time.
