YouTube Channel ID and User ID Convertor

When you’re just starting out on YouTube, your YouTube channel name will simply be equal to your YouTube channel ID, which is a random 24-character string. However, when you gain your first 100 subscribers, YouTube allows you to create a custom YouTube channel name.

The difference between a YouTube channel ID and channel name looks something like the code below. Both the links below will direct you to the same place, PewDiePie’s YouTube channel – one uses his YouTube username and the other uses his YouTube channel ID.

YouTube Username example:

You may also sometimes see YouTube usernames like this:

YouTube Channel ID example:
