Exclude Shorts from the feed

The widget displays both regular videos and Shorts together. Make it possible to exclude the Shorts.

@Barb that’s a nice suggestion, thank you for sharing!

We’ll try to consider this request in our future updates, I’ll keep you posted here :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot for helping us!

This would be absolutely awesome! Many channels are flooded by shorts which are just snippets of the larger videos my users are actually interested in.

Hey there @SteveDigital and welcome to the Community :wave:

Glad to tell you that we’ve found a workaround for this case. To exclude shorts from the feed, please follow these steps:

Find your YouTube Channel ID by clicking on the Share button


Replace UC in the Channel ID with UULF

Example:

UULF9LQwHZoucFT94I2h6JOcjw


Create a link for the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=Channel ID. Replace Channel ID with your own channel ID resulted in the previous step

Example: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=UUSH9LQwHZoucFT94I2h6JOcjw


Add this link to the Source Group section. YouTube Channel URL field should be empty

Please check it out and let me know if it worked for you :slightly_smiling_face:
