QUESTION

The default "Subscriptions" feed on the YouTube homepage shows all of the activity of the people that I am subscribed to on YouTube or have in circles on Google+. However, I'm most interested in new videos that the people I subscribe to (either on YouTube or by circling on Google+) create and post (neglecting comments or sharing other people's videos - what you see when you check the "show uploads only" checkbox on the YouTube homepage). However, being able to bring anything off of the YouTube homepage and into Google Reader as an RSS feed would be good.

Is there a way to do this?

ANSWER

You can get RSS feed by username, something like this:

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/{username}/newsubscriptionvideos

Example:

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/google/newsubscriptionvideos.

How to get Youtube username (source):

  1. Go to youtube.com
  2. Click on the arrow next to your username at the top right of the screen.
  3. Click Channel under My Account.
  4. Enter the username you'd like by typing it into the text field provided.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Choose your privacy settings from the options provided.
  7. Click All Done!

Steps to get username if you've already linked your G+ account to your YouTube account

  1. Go to youtube.com
  2. Click on the arrow next to your username at the top right of the screen.
  3. Click My channel under YouTube
  4. Take the ID from the address bar http://www.youtube.com/channel/{id}
