You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.

Put the channel's username in this address:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.

For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?c
