The Youtube playlist have a xml strema, RSS feed.

You can parse this and create post via wp_insert_post() and add as content the URL to the video. Publish this and you have wich each new video from the playlist a new post.

The best way is, that you write a custom plugin. But you can aslo use a auto publisher plugin for feeds.

Two steps:

  • Fetch the playlist XML. Use that as import file.
  • Write a custom importer. Look at the native WXR importer to see how that works. Should be very similar.
