    Looks like someone will be starting again.

    The playlist won't appear on the main youtube edu page and the ONLY ways to view the playlist is to view the channel page or the playlist via a shortcut/url directly.

    Once you have an account which allows you to go to the 'account_school', you can simply share a playlist from within that account. We do exactly that here.

    The only reason I can see that it isn't working is that the account that has the playlist in it isn't the one which that was used to set up Youtube for Schools.

    I don't know what you mean by "share a playlist from within that account"
    What do you actually do?
    I was told to do a shortcut separately as @Gaz says.
    SWGfL have told me it IS a header modification and it is all fine.
    Even more confused now.

    I mean you simply make a shortcut to the playlist that you've made in that account.

    SWGfL are mixing up terms - they are using URL modification (ie. adding &edufilter=gibberish) to the URL. If it was header modification, the end user wouldn't see that at all - it is completely hidden behind the scenes.

    I think what you need to do is go through signing up to Youtube for schools via the link YouTube für Schulen - YouTube and then replace the youtube string in SWGfL filtering with the one you get from this sign up. Then try sharing a playlist.

    This gets worse
    I signed out and went back to that page and started all over again, filling in email and school details etc. When I clicked "sign up" at the bottom it took me to the account I already know about. It won't let me use my email as it says I already have a google account.
    This HAS to be the one I was using as I don't have any other email addresses. So it must be right, surely?
    I now get the page with "manage my account" . If I click on that I am back to the list of channels, I choose the one with the head and not the blue boxes. Create a new channel, create a playlist. Copy the URL. It doesn't work.

    You shouldn't sign out of the account you've already got. Stay signed in, then go to the sign up page for Youtube for Schools. You don't need a new Google/Youtube account.

    The fact you cannot get to the /account_school page proves that the account is not the youtube for schools admin account.

    But it is
    And as I said, I tried to create a new account and it will not let me because the email address is already used and I have no other email address so I cannot see how any other account can be the admin account. I have no private google account of any kind, and never have had.

    What do you mean create an account? You're not creating an account - you're signing the existing account up to Youtube for Schools.

    @witch. You are not alone. I gave up trying to do this on the SEGFL. Does anyone on this thread have it working through any **GFL?

    As I have said you are welcome to try my test setup which I know works all you would need to do is change the school identifier at SWGfL end.

    I mean, I was signed in on the page and went to "sign up" and filled in all the details it asks for: Name email school address etc
    I couldn't get any further as the email address was "already in use"
    Now I cant even get that far as I am getting an internal server error

    Hmm... In that case, I think your account at Youtube is broken. Try posting in this forum: https://productforums.google.com/for...be-for-schools

    They're pretty slow at replying, but they do eventually.

    I might be asking for trouble weighing into this one.
    What happens if you use the share button and copy the url. Remove the s from https. Make sure the playlist is unlisted. This seems to work.

    I did that and yay! I can now do a shortcut to the playlist...
    But
    the clips don't play.
    It's odd- either I can't even get them to start, or the list of the clips which comes up on the right of the one you are playing, starts cycling through - selecting each one but not playing either, and then finally coming up with an error of the "please try later" variety
    I really thought I had got somewhere
