How to subscribe to YouTube user’s feed without Google account?

by Fyodor Glebov   Last Updated February 17, 2018 20:03 PM

How do I subscribe to a YouTube user’s feed (not playlists, likes, or comments) without a Google account?

E.g.:

https://www.youtube.com/user/$USERNAME/feed

I wish to have it in my normal feed reader. (not second source)

The URL for a user feed in YouTube is:

https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/<user>/uploads 

Replace with the name of a YouTube channel or user.

Some feeds are not available via HTTPS, so if this doesn't work:

https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/<user>/uploads

..then try HTTP (just remove the "s"):

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/<user>/uploads

You could try using this Zapier Zap which creates an RSS feed of any users YouTube video feed.

You just need to sub in the users YouTube username and Zapier will create the RSS feed you can put in your RSS feed.

YouTube Users RSS Feed

You can easily substitute the RSS feed in Zapier for other form of notification too like email, sms, instant message, etc.

For the user's feed, use the following URL syntax:

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?user=USER_ID

For example: https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?user=Google


For the user's channel, use the following URL syntax:

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=CHANGE_THIS

For example: https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=UC3x6qC4h-NyuvQBSZYaPKrQ
