I ordered a spark amp, I think I get the amp next week! I am already looking a bit how the app works! 🥱
Ik can get Spotify in the app and Apple Music but I do not know how I get anything from YouTube in the app?

Spotify and Apple Music are actually drawing their videos from YouTube so you don't need a special YouTube app or anything. Simply load your songs on Spotify/AppleMusic and they should sync with your Spark app on your ios or android device. Keep in mind though that you will only be able to load a maximum of 20 songs from each playlist...once you exceed this number, the last one is automatically deleted from the playlist on your spark app. Good luck and enjoy your new amp.

@hombr8ten Anywhere in the app you see a Search or Mic icon you can perform a search by text or voice and it will return a list of 20 songs of its choosing from YouTube. You can save songs found in searches one-by-one as Spark Favorites but you're limited to 20, after which it starts replacing previous saves.
As for directly importing and storing your YouTube library, ain't gonna happen. In the first place Spark can't even see the folders or playlists in your YouTube account (or anybody else's). As rgregg mentioned, you can import your YouTube folders into Spotify as playlists but again, only 20 songs per list. And when you import multiple playlists from Spotify into Spark, only one is stored session to session. Spark also retains your Favorites list, recently played list, and whatever Spark chooses to feature on its Music screen.
I understand your goal, over the years I've built up a large collection of backing tracks and tutorials on YouTube and Spark's import limitations are frustrating. The workaround I came up with is to run Spark and YouTube simultaneously on my iPad using a split screen. Although it has one drawback (* see note), it actually has some advantages.
*The Spark app can't perform or display chord analysis for a track or song it hasn't imported. Fortunately, the majority of YouTube backing track videos show the chords during playback.
