How Do I Add My YouTube Channel to My Discord Server?

Discord is a popular communication platform that allows you to create servers and connect with people who share similar interests. If you’re a content creator on YouTube, adding your YouTube channel to your Discord server can be a great way to keep your community engaged and updated with your latest videos. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of adding your YouTube channel to your Discord server.

Step 1: Creating a Bot

Before we can add our YouTube channel to our Discord server, we need to create a bot on the Discord Developer Portal. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Discord Developer Portal and log in with your Discord account.
  2. Create a new application by clicking on the “New Application” button.
  3. Navigate to the “Bot” tab and click on “Add Bot.”
  4. Give your bot a name and customize its profile picture if desired.
  5. Note down your bot’s token, as we will need it later.

Step 2: Adding the Bot to Your Server

Now that we have created our bot, let’s add it to our Discord server:

  1. Go back to the Discord Developer Portal and select your application.
  2. Navigate to the “OAuth2” tab.
  3. In the “Scopes” section, select “bot” from the list of options.
  4. In the “Bot Permissions” section, choose the permissions you want for your bot. For adding your YouTube channel, the “Manage Server” permission is necessary.
  5. Copy the generated OAuth2 URL.
  6. Paste the URL into your web browser and select the server where you want to add the bot.
  7. Authorize the bot by following the prompts.

Step 3: Adding a YouTube Channel RSS Feed

Now that our bot is added to our Discord server, we can proceed with adding our YouTube channel’s RSS feed:

  1. Invite a Discord bot with RSS integration capabilities, such as Dyno, to your server. You can find such bots on popular bot listing websites like
  2. Grant the necessary permissions to the bot to manage channels and send messages.
  3. In your Discord server, create a text channel where you want to receive YouTube updates.
  4. Configure the Dyno bot by following its setup instructions.

    Most bots require you to provide your YouTube channel’s RSS feed URL.

    • If you’re unsure about your channel’s RSS feed URL, you can find it by entering “” in your web browser. Replace “YOUR_CHANNEL_ID” with your actual channel ID.
  5. Once configured, the bot will start posting updates from your YouTube channel in the specified text channel on your Discord server.

Step 4: Customizing Bot Settings (Optional)

If you want to further customize how your YouTube updates are displayed in Discord, some bots offer additional settings:

  • Some bots allow you to set a specific role that will be pinged whenever a new video is uploaded.
  • You may also be able to customize the format of the message that is posted in Discord, including options like embedding the video or adding additional information.


By following these steps, you can easily add your YouTube channel to your Discord server and keep your community informed about your latest content. Adding a bot with RSS integration capabilities simplifies the process and ensures that your YouTube updates are automatically shared with your Discord server members. Experiment with different bot settings to personalize the experience and engage with your community in a meaningful way.
