To find your YouTube channel ID:
- Go to YouTube and sign in to your account.
- Click on your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen and select “My channel” from the dropdown menu.
- Your channel ID will be displayed in the URL of your channel page. It will be a string of letters and numbers after “channel/”. For example, if the URL of your channel page is “https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1234567890“, then your channel ID is “UC1234567890”.
