Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut to generate the proper playlist link for any videos that you’ve shared from a playlist queue.

For people using my YouTube Playlist Dictionary and “Open My YouTube playlists,” this also works as a way to copy out the proper playlist link from the dictionary (helpful if you’ve used playlist IDs or video-in-playlist links in that dictionary).
