It’s not working anymore :'(

This is true. The V3 release from Google has stopped this for good.

Someone has created a small PHP script that scrapes a Youtube URL for video links, and then outputs them as an atom feed: https://gist.github.com/Skalman/801436d9693ff03bc4ce

URLs such as https://www.youtube.com/user/scishow/videos work.

Caveats:

The tool doesn’t scrape dates
Playlists won’t include more than 100 videos
Playlists include the “play all” link
Author is correctly set only for channels (e.g. not playlists)
Maybe Youtube will block you if you use this too much (but hopefully the limits are high enough)
Likely several more…
