Ok, I managed to get it working:

We now have the official WaT youtube playlist made from the posts in our "Omnipresent Music Thread". The list is not complete yet (only 8 pages of the 45 have been parsed for a total of currently 85 songs so far) and the order might also see a change in the future, but its accessible as from today:

Paste the following link (in the "code" field) into your browser and hit "play" and it will start playing all the list. Below the currently running video you see more of the list so you can skip or jump, always the next song will be played once the current one is finished.

Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zX0gDdZFiJ4&playnext=1&list=PL6059812A4061360C

The list is a bit subjective as I am making it according to my preferences (ordering it), but the system the list is produced by could not be clearer:

I choose one song of the various songs posted in *each* message (the one I like best usually) and add it to the list. If there is only one song I will post this one, if there are more than one I select one.

The only problem I have encountered so far is that there are ads that also display automatically...

Enjoy!

Actually, to avoid misconceptions I should maybe make it clear that this list is still quite rudimentary at the moment, and an ongoing project:

- only 8 of 49 pages have been parsed so far

- only pages from the Omnipresent Music Thread have been parsed, the Vietnam Soundtrack has not yet been touched (but will of course)

- Now the list is 96 songs long, when finished I expect it to be around 600 songs long (some 40 hours of music).

So, be patient and stay tuned, the list will grow eventually. Smiley

You have to make a "playlist" in your channel and add the single vids.

NP, Cranky.

The problem is that the system in youtube truly not is intuitive, I also needed time to figure it out reading up on advice on the net.

Same with later (as in our case) transmitting an URL that makes the playlist play on browsers of *others*, I have been trying this for almost half a year without success (and I dont really know - dont remember - where I finally got the URL from that does it).

They need a guy over there at google/youtube that understands man/machine interfaces not only from an engineering POV but maybe the way the Mac community does (still inspired by the great genious - but officially ignored -  "Woz", who incidentally will probably go back to Apple once Jobs should lose his fight against his cancer), both are lacking significantly in this field: You wont imagine the problems I run into as TechAdmin when I deal with google, it all works but you need ages to figure out how.

I will skip my ideas on the interface here, but should someone be interested, man/machine interfaces are my hobby (both from an aviation POV - remember the change to *vertical* switches from *horizontal* ones to make clear what is "ON and what is "OFF"? - as well as from a software POV: An "intuitive" system should *always* provide you with at least three alternative paths to one same objective) and I would be more than glad to direct anybody to relevant sources.
