Today I found out that Youtube's built in RSS feeds for playlists and channel subs only include 15 items. In the case of playlists they only have the first 15 items in the the playlist not the last 15, so if there are 16 videos you won't get the latest one, but will get any future videos that are added to it.

The feed could include the entire channel/playlist but I guess youtube has to keep you on the site somehow...


So now I want to write a script that will youtube-dl my subs when the RSS updates then add it to a list on a self hosted page that acts like my own personal youtube interface with no JS, just a video element and the description.
