Zoom Player is a versatile and powerful media player for Windows that can play almost any format of video and audio files. One of its unique features is the ability to integrate YouTube channels into its media library, so you can watch your favorite online content without leaving the app. In this blog post, I will show you how to add a YouTube channel as a Zoom Player media library category in a few simple steps.

First, you need to open the media library category editor. You can do this by pressing Shift+"M" on your keyboard, or by right-clicking anywhere on the Zoom Player interface and selecting "Open Interface" and then "Media Library Category Editor".

Next, you need to create a new category for the YouTube channel. To do this, click on the "Create Category" button at the top-right of the category editor window. A dialog box will pop up, asking you to choose the type of category you want to create. Select "YouTube Channel" from the list and click "OK".

Then, you need to enter the URL of the YouTube channel you want to add. You can copy and paste the URL from your web browser, or type it manually. Make sure the URL is valid. After you enter the URL, click "OK" again.

Finally, you can open the media library to see the results. You can do this by clicking on the "Open Media Library" button at the bottom-right of the category editor window, or by pressing Ctrl+"M" on your keyboard. You should see a new category with the name and icon of the YouTube channel you added. You can click on it to browse and play the videos from that channel.

That's it! You have successfully added a YouTube channel as a Zoom Player media library category. You can repeat this process for any other YouTube channels you want to watch on Zoom Player. Enjoy!
