How to “Export” your YouTube subscriptions

I am trying to start using the iLikeToMakeStuff YouTube channel as my main one (instead of my music channel), so I wanted to move my subscriptions from one channel to another. Unfortunately, there’s no simple way to do that.

I made a little JSFiddle that will help you along, in case you want to do the same thing.

You’ll need to go to your (old channel’s) subscription page, and copy the HTML source, then paste it into the top-left frame.  Hit RUN-> and you’ll have a list of links to all of the subscribed channels.

This isn’t a perfect solution, by any means, but it simplifies the process a little bit. You’ll still need to

  1. Log into the new channel,
  2. click the links to go to the pages
  3. Click Subscribe

Good luck, feel free to improve the Fiddle and post updated links below in the comments!
