Sort YouTube playlist videos alphabetically by title
You've just uploaded 100 family videos to YouTube. You even put them in a playlist. But when you watch them, they're out of order. Manually reordering all those videos is a huge pain. Luckily, you named them with a year and month prefix. You go to the playlist settings and change the ordering to "Alphabetical". But wait, there is no option to sort alphabetically!?!?! This extension will let you sort your playlist videos by title, in ascending or descending order. YouTube is a trademark of Google Inc. Use of this trademark is subject to Google Permissions.
- (2021-03-19) Mark Hutchison: It is sadly no longer working. It requires manual edit to be enabled, however that option can't be found through the new playlist interface. Without turning that on, it can't work.
- (2021-03-12) Abdullah Alghafli: Hello, This does not work on Private windows apparently. 1/5 until proven otherwise.
- (2020-12-13) Xolani Khumalo: I cannot find how to sort playlists to "manual". Someone help
- (2020-12-01) Paul Jordan: I have a YTM playlist with 960 music tracks in it - at the speed it's going it's going to take 3/4hour to complete the A-Z list @ about 2.5secs per track. Is this normal?
- (2020-10-07) Karl Martin: This is perfect. Works well, I was looking for something that can help me sort songs on YouTube Music, since YouTube Music and YouTube shares the same library and playlist it does sort my stuff on YouTube Music as well. Exactly what I was looking for.
- (2020-09-22) Mikarlwave W: Gotta say does what it says it says it does, and does it well. Love it. I would love to see a sorting function that has to do with the channel. For example grouping same channel videos together and having the channels be alphabetically ordered. That would be extremely awesome especially for music playlists. Anyways really great and thank you!
- (2020-08-23) James Maple: Only seems to support alphabetical sorting which youtube does anyway. Pointless.
- (2020-08-16) 張韶中: This extension is really good. However, when I use it on my music playlist, it doesn't work at all. For example, some will be sort as it's title and some will be sort as it's author. I think the reason might be the name of the song in YouTube and YouTube Music is different. If able, please the devs fix this problem but it's ok if it's not possible.
- (2020-07-25) Alexandru-Daniel Florea: "Error because you execed your quota"...
- (2020-07-10) Maya Diamant-Cohen: This was great and really helped me sort out my videos, saved me time and was wonderful. My issue is that it stopped working and I can't find a way to fix it. At first it couldn't get my videos, then it kept saying "error 403" and now it is telling me that I "exceeded my quota". I am not sure what to do in this case and would love some advice. Thanks again :)
- (2020-07-10) Pentameron: After login, it displays: Error retrieving playlists: Error retrieving playlists: 403
- (2020-04-10) Molly Allen: It does not work. My playlists are still out of order. Very disappointed. I will be deleting this extension.
- (2020-03-18) Dafni M.: I need this but why does it need permission to post comments publicly? nope.
- (2020-03-08) Uroš Kotolenko: great, just what i was looking for! thanks a lot!
- (2020-03-04) Danny D.: I doesnt offer me any option for sorting playlists, just load them.
- (2020-01-02) Влад Полюхович: Very useful extension. But it have not enough sorting options, the option to sort videos alphabetically with group by publisher would be great.
- (2019-12-15) Bimesh Poudel: kept saying backend error
- (2019-12-11) jaleh: I love this extension and it has been working very good. Although, today it won't load my new playlist or any other playlist. It keeps on saying, "Error retrieving playlists: Error retrieving playlists: 403". I have reloaded the app and logged out several times, and now it is saying that it isn't verified by Google. Any chance you know what is going on?
- (2019-12-08) Rachel: I've been looking for something like this for a long time, YouTube is really terrible when it comes to playlists. I can't give it 5 stars because it doesn't seem to work with the new UI that has the playlists on the left-hand sidebar. I used to use an extension that did this, but unfortunately, it doesn't work anymore.
- (2019-11-13) Victor Developer: Doesn't work anymore
- (2019-11-07) cody jackson: this gives me a feature youtube should have by default. does what it needs to no confusing UI just a working add on!
- (2019-08-07) Legendarysnake: thank you so much for making this, youtube is dumb and dont make a alphabetic sorts on their playlists
- (2019-06-04) Japs Vlogs & Tips: Thank you so much, i made a video for this app https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPFPf78_Xzg
- (2019-06-02) Ahmed Hamdy: does exactly what it says, the code is opensource also!, I needed to make some tweaks in sorting method and it worked like a charm, thanks! (in my case, I needed so sort by a number in the video title, the extension originally compares the strings but this didn't work for me, if that's your case https://github.com/shakram02/youtube-playlist-sorter and load the upacked extension [enable chrome dev mode] after running build.sh script -it won't be published to the store, please rate this extension-)
- (2019-05-21) BMMH ACCOUNT: Thank you very much! very helpful.
- (2019-05-15) Alexandre Sporrer: Doesn't work for me it says "403 forbidden". Maybe it's because there are video titles with other letters of other alphabet.
- (2019-03-16) Sayonil Mitra: Its simple, fast..just what i wanted.
- (2019-03-14) Dalibor Tesanovic: Very useful! Saved the day! Works smooth and flawless. Sorts big playlists with many videos by video title (video name) - quickly and efficiently. Five stars easily. Thanks, Ryan!
- (2019-02-11) Liviu Olteanu: The extension works like a charm! It does exactly what is supposed to do. Unfortunatley i am forced to give it only 4 stars because every time i want to acces the extension i have to make some useless login steps even i am logged in on Chrome and Youtube. Would be great to get this bug fixed in the next version.
- (2019-01-26) Matthias Jud: can confirm what harald weichhart says: doesnt do much. shows page with your playlists, alphabetically. but when you are on youtube: no effect at all - IMHO - USELESS!
- (2018-12-15) Disciple de Jésus-Christ: marche
- (2018-10-13) Joe: OMG I can not believe someone finally made a extension for Youtube playlist. My library is quite large. 2 of my playlist have almost 500 songs each. This is what I have been looking for. I was surprised after I closed the browser and reopened it the songs were still sorted A-Z. Even when I go to Youtube on my phone the songs in the playlist are A-Z. Thank you Ryan.
- (2018-09-22) Swimmer: Very and useful plugin. It would be nice if there was an option to do case insensitive sorting
- (2018-08-19) imasheep 2: works simply and wonderfully..must click a-z icon in upper right corner of google..sign in.. and there it is...my playlists a-z...saves a lot of time searching for videos...great job
- (2018-08-15) Truyện Audio: Good but flawed. It's soft 1 10 2 , not 1 2 10.
- (2018-08-08) Marcel Sterner: For some playlists, the videos don't load. On top of the screen there's the "Loading videos..." message, but no matter how long I wait the videos don't show up. Funny thing is, playlists with i.e. 130 videos load almost immediately, but playlists with 4 or 30 videos (in my case) don't. Except for a few playlists everything works fine, though I'd be glad if my issue got resolved. EDIT: Well, seems like it doesn't work when there's a deleted/private video in the playlist. Just removing it resolved the issue. Leaving the comment just in case someone got the same issue.
- (2018-07-08) Sandra Montisci: A software product, 'Playlist Sorter for YouTube', offered by pocketproduct.com (created by Ryan Manwiller), which does sort YouTube playlist videos by name, (i.e. in alphabetical order) is an excellent product. The software product fills a void created by the YouTube website, which does not sort YouTube playlist videos by name, (i.e. not in alphabetical order / the YouTube website does only sort by "Date created [newest]", by "Date created [oldest]" and by "Last video added"). Therefore I have rated 5* to the software product, 'Playlist Sorter for YouTube'.
- (2018-06-22) Rex Underwood: Upgraded to 5 stars after I got it to work again. Kudos!
- (2018-06-11) Slava Lishnevsky: DOESNT WORK
- (2018-04-16) meltdownman: This sorts my playlist! I would like one additional ability added and that is to be able to delete those playlists that I no longer want included in the library. Thank you, The Meltdownman
- (2018-03-13) Sal DeLuca: It did exactly what it said it would. Well done! Thanks a lot!
- (2018-02-23) Richard: Is there any chance you can get this to work for the file name of the videos as it is the file name i went in order not the title i have given the videos.
- (2018-02-19) Anouk Koray: Looks like this may have been updated as it does actually sort playlists within the library, as well as individual videos within each playlist. Good job guys. At least someone has provided a much-needed option that YouTube are still sitting on their hands about.
- (2018-01-31) Shane Card: Worked great for what I wanted.
- (2018-01-30) Julian: Works fine for me.
- (2017-11-15) Corinne M: Does not sort playlist in library
- (2021-02-18, v:1.0.1) Shelley Mccarty: sorting videos within a playlist
this extension put the names of my playlists in alphabetical order but I can't figure out how to put my videos within the playlist in alphabetical order
- (2020-12-20, v:1.0.1) Tim Toronto: Manual Sort setting not found
I clicked where you said, but I can't find the Manual Sort option, please see the screenshots. 1. https://www.screencast.com/t/cipNuq34 2. https://www.screencast.com/t/DOPdlosA 3. https://www.screencast.com/t/O7qkqRglyxD
- (2020-12-06, v:1.0.1) François E·M: +SAVE aka: "Save to..." button -sorting
Does this app also sort your playlists to appear alphabetically on the pop-up that shows whenever you try to add to them thru the +SAVE aka: "Save to..." button that's right below YouTube videos?
- (2020-08-28, v:1.0.1) Anthony Palmieri: It doesn't seem to be working.
No option to sort is appearing after i added your Playlist Order extension to my Chrome browser
- (2020-08-07, v:1.0.1) Noel Moore: Playlist sorting
What I actually want to do is to change the order of playlists, rather than videos within a playlist. Can you do this?
- (2020-07-31, v:1.0.1) Vincent Wong: Error retrieving playlists: Error retrieving playlists: 403
After recent update, it seems to have the following problem, "Error retrieving playlists: Error retrieving playlists: 403" I've tried different accounts with the same issue. Chrome is the latest version on WIN10 x64.
- (2020-06-18, v:1.0.1) Victory Virtual Solutions: Does this addon also sort the playlists in the library? If so, I'm in! lol
I'm trying to find an addon that will sort the playlists by title, not necessarily the videos in the playlists, but I can see where that would be usesful too. Thanks!
- (2020-06-15, v:1.0.1) Nic Chancellor: why is this a complete waste of time?
this did nothing to my problem of sorting playlists,
- (2020-05-30, v:1.0.1) Meta Critic: Exceeded Quota?????
It doesnt let me sort the playlist because of exceeded quota, like what why is there a quota
- (2020-05-21, v:1.0.1) Brandon Kelly: Error retrieving playlists: Error retrieving playlists: 403
I just downloaded this extension and it seems unusable. Is this error going to get fixed. seems im not the only person experiencing this. Thank You.
- (2020-05-20, v:1.0.1) Dylan Cook: I am getting the 403 Error as well
https://gyazo.com/f0ac8191a4eb113d3094c506b93a1055 Every time I login it displays this error and will not allow me to view my playlists. I hope a fix is on the way, this service is very helpful!
- (2020-05-19, v:1.0.1) LM google: Error retrieving playlists: 403
HI, I can no longer bring up my youtube playlist. Keep getting the Error retrieving playlists: 403 error. I uninstalled the extension (and my 5 star review was taken away!), but even after a reinstall I can't get it to work. Suggestions? Many thanks!
- (2020-05-16, v:1.0.1) Jim Pedersen: Playlist Sorter Quota
I have been uploading videos into various playlists, and today I'm getting the following notice: 403: The request cannot be completed because you have exceeded your quota. What's happening?
- (2020-05-06, v:0.0.9) pisagatos pisagatos: Error

- (2020-05-05, v:0.0.9) TheRhysWyrill: Not Working Currently
Would appear that the add-on is currently no longer working, every time I try to use it it results in this error: 400: Invalid value for: Invalid format: "2019-06-13T01:28:43Z" is malformed at "Z" after about 30 seconds of the add-on working, no matter what i've tried (uninstalling, clearing cookies etc) it results in the same outcome.
- (2020-04-23, v:0.0.9) 1000Gbps 1000Gbps: What is the exact sorting algorithm
Seems it differs from "dir /B" command in Windows (7, 8, 10) That's a problem when trying to find (comparing outputs of dir commandand the extension) which one of the videos is missing from your youtube's playlist compared to your local video directory. Please reply, it's important because some lists are more than 300-400 clips and manual search'n'replace is a no-go
- (2020-04-04, v:0.0.9) Johan Pålsson: Exceeded quota
It doesn't sort my videos, I just installed the extension. Says I have exceeded my quota and when I click on the word quota it takes me to a page with nothing

- (2020-01-03, v:0.0.9) Владислав Полюхович: Sorting by both video title and publisher simultaneously
It would be great, if this extension has an option to sort playlist by both video title and publisher simultaneously
- (2019-11-05, v:0.0.7) Eduard K.: Random sorting button
Please add additional button for random sorting.

This extension doesn't handle playlists with videos that were deleted.
