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

#RSS #BringBackRSS

@switchingsocial every time I view source on yourube to find the channel_id buried in some mess of javascript, I am again stunned at Google's commitment to web standards.

@joeyh I was gonna say, that is a fantastic typo.
