How To Save A Video To Watch Later
If you’re watching or browsing a video on YouTube and want to watch it later, hover over the thumbnail video image at the top. You can it watch later or add it to a queue.

If you click on the three dots under the video, you have these options,
– Add to queue,

– Don’t recommend channel,
– Report.

If I hover over the top of the video, it says, “Watch later.” If i click on watch later it says “Added” and it’s saved to my Watch later playlist.

If I click on the Watch later playlist, you can see that the video has been added to the bottom of the playlist. This is a private playlist created by YouTube. You can see the lock icon with the word “Private” next to it.

How To Sort  Videos In Watch Later Playlist
You can shuffle the videos by clicking on the left of the video to drag it and drop it where you want it. If you bring it to the top, then the thumbnail changes at the top.

If I click on the three dots to the right of the video, I can add it to a queue, save it to a different playlist, remove it from the watch later playlist, move to the top or move to the bottom.

If I drag it to the bottom, then it’s moved to the bottom of the playlist. If I click on the three dots again, then click Move it to the top, then it’s moved to the top of the playlist.

If I click on the three dots, click Add to queue, then it plays in a little mini-player down the bottom of my page. Now if I click the X, then you get a little popup saying the queue will be cleared. Are you sure you want to close the player? Click Close player.

Click Create new playlist and give it a name. I’ll just call it “Fitness” for the purposes of this video, then I can select my privacy settings. I’m going to just make it private so it’s only available to me, so nobody else can watch it, then click Create.

If I go to the left-hand column of my channel home page, I can now see my new playlist called Fitness. If I click on Fitness I can see my Fitness playlist.

These are all videos in a private playlist that are now only available to me but not available to the public.
