I can access the youtube Playlist with the default youtube application on an iOS device by tapping "More" then "Playlists", but how can I play those lists? When I tap on a playlist, it shows the list of videos included in it, and I can only play them individually one at a time. I want to play the whole list continuously. I don't connect my device (iPod Touch 4) to a computer, so I cannot use a solution that uses iTunes.

  • Can we widen this to an iTunes-using solution?

There is no way you could do that, I have that problem also. You could try to send YouTube a feature request, but I won't think they will do that as Google now owns YouTube and Google and Apple aren't exactly the best friends... But you coud try :)

    Thanks for the information. Then, I wonder what the purpose is for it to be possible to see and even edit the playlist at all. It is useless.

Download the google app. Next open the google app on your iphone and type "youtube" into the search bar. Click youtube.com search result to open the youtube website and it will automatically open the mobile version.
Now you can play playlists and use all of youtubes functionality on your iphone.

  • Using "google app"(? Do you mean Chrome web browser?) to launch the mobile version of Youtube is not necessary. This question was posted 4 years ago and is no longer relevant. The current YouTube app can play a playlist, just as @sawa asked for. Commented Apr 19, 2016 at 19:53
  • @InsomniacSoftware Feel free to post this ("The current YouTube app supports this out of the box") as an answer.
