The new YouTube API changed the way YouTube feeds process (YouTube never offered feeds, and feeds were usually difficult to find), but the feeds are still inaccessible from the interface. Here’s a most useful YouTube feeds compliation by Ionut, you may want to add in your favorite feed reader:

  1. Search feeds
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?orderby=updated&vq=mapreduce
    (replace mapreduce with your query)
  2. Search in a category
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/-/Film/?vq=michel%20gondry&orderby=updated
    (Film is the category, while michel gondry is the query - you need to replace the space with %20. Other categories: Music, Comedy, News, Sports, Autos, Howto.)
  3. The latest videos from a channel
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/radiohead/uploads?orderby=updated
    (replace radiohead with your channel)

    ...or only the videos that match your keywords:
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/radiohead/uploads?orderby=updated&vq=jigsaw
  4. Feeds for favorite videos
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/lonelygirl15/favorites?orderby=updated
    (replace lonelygirl15's favorite videos)
  5. Playlists
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/playlists/50653251EDB4E764
    (the code in italic can be obtained from the playlists's URL (e.g.: Eric Speaks)
