Google Discontinues YouTube's Collections Feature

Post by HKO2006 » May 13th, 2015, 2:01 am

On 20/05/2015 we'll discontinue collections, as we'll focus on other efforts to make your subscriptions even more enjoyable.
Crap, it is one of my fav feature as I can have all the nightcore channels in one place and see all the new uploads. It is painful to look over the one messy all-in-one feed because I subscribe to over 1000 channels.

Any workaround?

I didn't even know that this feature existed until two days ago. Don't even know how it works xD

Now I am using RSS feed reader for the first time, trying out three readers actually: feedly, digg reader and FeedDemon.
feedly has the best UI, display options, play video in its tab but won't show anything beyond 30 days if you are viewing a 'collection'.
digg reader shows beyond 30 days if you are viewing a 'collection' but the UI is less worse, no display options, videos has to be viewed in a new tab
FeedDemon

How to
1. Export subscriptions, https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6224202
2. Ctrl + F to find the channel names, copy the urls to your feed readers
Notes: you can export your feed list from one reader to another
