YouTube Playlists

YouTube has changed the way you view playlists several times.  I liked having the playlist on the right-hand side where I can see all the videos listed and then decide whether or not I wanted to AutoPlay.

Now they have the playlist bar on the bottom: http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/answer.py?answer=146749

The problem is that when I go to a person's channel that I want to watch a playlist from, the playlist is embedded in that person's page.  If I want to view comments, I have to click another link, which takes me away from the page and away from the playlist.  I haven't found an easy way to get to the playlist bar at the bottom for different playlists.

So, I just take this URL and replace it with what I need:
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[VIDEO_ID]&p=[PLAYLIST_ID]&index=2&playnext=1


UPDATE 12/5/2011:
The URL is now in the form:
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[VIDEO_ID]&feature=BFa&list=PL[PLAYLIST_ID]&lf=BFa

You can choose if you want your playlist to be public (viewable by others) or private (only viewable by you). buy cheap youtube video views
