Weird errors when publishing playlists…

A weird error has appeared…

There are only 7 ways you can end up with those red triangles when publishing a playlist across your streaming profiles. Find your specific situation below and we’ll tell you how to make it right!

1. You have linked a playlist URL instead of a playlist ID

Context: You tried to link an existing playlist to Soundsgood but you pasted a playlist URL instead of a playlist ID.

In the Playlist Editor, click on the Parameters icon near the concerned streaming platform.

Delete the playlist URL and replace it by the playlist ID (the strings of numbers at the end of your streaming platform’s playlist url).

Click on the Checkmark icon to apply changes.

You are good to go! 👍

2. Your playlist does not exist anymore on your streaming profile

Context: Soundsgood can’t delete your playlists within streaming platforms, but you might have done it yourself, preventing Soundsgood to update a playlist that is no more. 

Open your streaming platform profile and create a new temporary playlist with just one track and a random title (they’ll be updated later by Soundsgood).

Copy this Playlist ID (the string of numbers in the playlist URL).

Go back to Soundsgood and Edit your playlist.

Click on the Parameters icon near the concerned streaming platform and paste the new playlist ID.

Apply changes with the Checkmark icon. Soundsgood updates your empty playlist with the proper title, description and tracklist.

You are good to go! 👍

3. Soundsgood is not authorized to sync your playlists anymore

Context: From time to time, streaming platforms can revoke the authorizations you made to external services such as Soundsgood.

To check if that’s the case for you, go to the Playlist Editor and click Settings.

Check if the concerned streaming platform is still connected to Soundsgood:

If it looks good, head to the next error in this post.

If it does not (it says “Linked as” with no username afterwards), click the X icon within the streaming platform box and re-connect it properly.

Then go back to your Playlist Editor in the Publish on section and click on the concerned streaming platform Parameters icon. 

Paste the original playlist ID (the strings of numbers at the end of your streaming platform’s playlist url).

Click on the Checkmark icon to apply changes.

Repeat on all your other Soundsgood playlists who had been made private.

You are good to go! 👍

4. You had already linked this playlist to another Soundsgood playlist

Context: You, or someone in your team, might have already linked this playlist to a Soundsgood playlist. A Spotify playlist cannot have two Master playlists.

Try to find the original playlist on your Soundsgood channel. If it does not exist, contact us with the link to the errored playlist.

5. Your playlist is not in “Manual” order in YouTube

Context: In most streaming platforms, you can set preferences for your playlists such as “Order tracks by recency”. Soundsgood works seamlessly with those features except for YouTube which needs to be set with Manual track ordering.

Click on the shortcut near Publish on YouTube to open your playlist in YouTube.

Click Playlist Settings then set Ordering to Manual.

Head back to the Soundsgood Playlist Editor, reorder two tracks to activate the syncing to YouTube, and place them back in their original order. 

You are good to go! 👍

6. You haven’t linked a proper YouTube channel

Context: When you link Soundsgood to a YouTube account, you might have selected a Gmail address not associated with a proper YouTube channel.

To check if it’s your case, head to the Playlist Editor and click Settings.

Click on the YouTube channel name to open it in YouTube. Do you have the following alert message by YouTube?

If it’s the case, you have no YouTube channel associated with the Gmail address you connected to Soundsgood.

  • If you are sure that you already have a YouTube channel, unlink Soundsgood with YouTube, and reconnect it with another Gmail address. When it’s done, you can head back to Soundsgood, switch OFF the YouTube sync and switch it ON back again.
  • If you don’t have a YouTube channel yet, click here to create one and pick a channel name. When it’s done, you can head back to Soundsgood, and switch ON the YouTube sync.

7. Your Deezer profile is private

Context: Deezer profiles can be private, preventing Soundsgood from managing your playlists there.

Log in to your Deezer account on a computer.

Click on the Parameters icon beside your name on the left of the screen and then click on Settings.

Go to your Deezer Account Settings.

Click on the Alerts & sharing tab.

Uncheck the Make my profile private box.

When it’s done, you can head back to Soundsgood, and switch ON the Deezer sync.

You are good to go! 👍

None of the above!

Congrats, you’ve just discovered an easter bug!
