People using YouTube-playlists do so on their YouTube-channels, most of the time. But we don't need YouTube to broadcast our YouTube-playlists. We only need YouTube to create them and to determine our playlist-number(s). If you want to broadcast your playlists outside any channel, do the following.
Go to http://www.youtube.com/my_videos. (You have to create a YouTube account if you are 'new').
Create a playlist and add videos to it by clicking on 'add videos', or simply add new videos to an already existing playlist.
There's a link on your page that allows you to manage all your playlists. Click on it.
This will show your playlist(s) together with an option to edit it / them. Click on the edit button of a given playlist.
Click on the 'Share' button (of the playlist) that shows up. This yiels the URL of the playlist. At the end of the URL you have 'list=some number', where some number is something like PL19C52D08D0EF69FC.
Using this listnumber, you can play all the videos attached to it by using a (new) URL like:
where EYfd7HipW-Q is the ID of the first video of the playlist having PL19C52D08D0EF69FC.
You can put the (new) URL in the address-bar, you can use it as the src of an iframe, etc.
Using it in an iframe would yield something like:
Of course you can use well-known methods for changing the URL of an iframe to dynamically produce any number of playlists you want. I made a quick example HERE.Code:<iframe style="width:400px; height: 400px" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/EYfd7HipW-Q?list=PL19C52D08D0EF69FC&start=0&autoplay=1&rel=0&showinfo=0&autohide=0"></iframe>
