Fix: YouTube App Error Adding to Playlist

Fix: YouTube App Error Adding to Playlist

While using the YouTube app on iOS, you receive an error every time you try to save a video to a playlist. In most cases, you simply want to save a video to your “favorites” playlist but you get the error: error adding to playlist. In some cases, you are able to save a video to your favorites playlist successfully. It does not matter the playlist you save it to.

What has worked for us is to end the YouTube app, re-open it, wait 30 seconds, then finally try to save your video again to a playlist. So far, this has worked most of the time for us.


This is definitely an issue with the YouTube app. YouTube has been updating their app bi-weekly it seems, however the error adding to playlist error is not fixed.


As a workaround, you can always go back to your YouTube watch history Library -> History and add videos to your playlists that were unsuccessful before so you don’t forget about them in the future.

My TT-BH040 won't pair with another device besides my iPhone. I'm trying to pair them with my Windows 10 laptop.
