Each time I try to add a playlist I receive the error message “Invalid or private playlist”. I suspect it has something to do with the playlists being auto-generated mixes.

Here is an example playlist:

Yeah, it looks like the links were being generated by Youtube as lists attached to specific videos rather than videos in a list, as they were “Mix” playlists auto-generated by Youtube based on the song.

I was able to manually change the URLs for two other lists that generated errors so that “list=” appeared before “v=”, and they added without any issues.

This:[VIDEO ID]&list=[LIST ID]
Into This:[LIST ID]&v=[VIDEO ID]
