I wanted to share this, and this is nothing new, really its for my own notes as I wanted to share my YouTube channel RSS feed in Microsoft Teams.

There are 4 steps you need to take.

Navigate to the YouTube channel you wish to add to your RSS feed.

 

Next we need to view the page source code, right click anywhere on the page to get the context menu and select view page source.

You will likely now see something like below,

We then need to find the following text hit F3 or CNTRL + F and search for “channel-external-id”

Get the value of the external ID and then you have your RSS feed URL

Replace that value into this URL:

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=UC76WpBnpf9aEqxMqu-C9yIw

Then to add to teams but this works for any RSS feed software. Open Microsoft Teams and navigate to the channel you wish the RSS feeds to be mentioned. 3 dots in the top right will give you the context menu, select connectors to configure RSS

You will then have a window that shows all available connectors if you have not done so already add the RSS connector and click configure.

Simply give your feed a reference name and then paste the RSS feed URL we obtained earlier and a schedule in which you would like this to be checked for updates.

This might help a few people out but wanted to add this here as I recently had to go searching for a solution.
