This section explains how to retrieve a feed listing a specific user’s playlists. Note that some users may not have created any playlists.

To request a feed of the currently logged-in user’s playlists, send a GET request to the following URL. Note: For this request, you must provide an authentication token, which enables YouTube to identify the user.

https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/default/playlists?v=2
To request a feed of another user’s playlists, send a GET request to the following URL. This request does not require authentication.

https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/userId/playlists?v=2
In the URL above, you should replace the text userId with the user’s YouTube user ID. For backward compatibility purposes, the API also supports having the user’s YouTube username specified instead.
