youtube feed update youtube handles

Tons of our users have told us how embedding YouTube feeds helped them boost engagement or grow their channels.

But what if creating YouTube feeds for your website was even faster and easier?

Well, our latest YouTube Feed update has you covered. You can now create new feeds using just your YouTube handles!

So, it’s easier than ever to embed your YouTube channel, live stream, and even favorites list.

Let’s take a closer look at this update below.

Easily Create Feeds Using YouTube Handles

In the past, you needed to enter a channel ID or username if you wanted to embed your YouTube channel, live streams, or favorites list.

While this method is simple, YouTube has been making it harder to find your channel ID or username these days.

Since Smash Balloon is committed to giving you the best possible experience when creating YouTube feeds, we came up with a solution.

On top of channel ID and usernames, now you can also use your YouTube handles when creating new feeds.

It’s super easy since these newly introduced YouTube handles are easy to find and fully customizable – no need to copy and paste complicated IDs.

To use this feature, select one of these feed types when creating your feed:

  • Channel
  • Favorites
  • Live Streams

After you do that, you can just enter your YouTube handle into the field – just like you used to paste your Channel ID or username.

Finally, click on the Next button to continue.

And that’s it! YouTube Feed will handle the rest and automatically import your videos or live streams and create a YouTube feed. 

Create Your YouTube Feeds Easily and Quickly

With this latest update, you now have 3 convenient options to create your YouTube feeds – traditional YouTube channel IDs, YouTube channel handles, or usernames.

This versatility lets you quickly set up your YouTube feeds using the method that best suits your preferences, so it’s more user-friendly than before.

As a result, it’s easier for you to get more viewers and subscribers for your YouTube channel by displaying your YouTube feeds on your website.
