Introduction

The playlist feature allows the admin and users to create their own video playlist. Admin can create playlist form the CMS which users can view on the website. Users can also create their own playlist on the website. You need to enable this feature from "User Features" in the CMS. Once enabled, users will see a “Add to Playlist” button in the content details page. When they click on the “Add to Playlist” button, the content will be added to their playlist. When users click on the playlist to play their favorite videos, it will automatically play the videos in the playlist one after the other automatically. If you have added any audio content in your store, then the users will see the option to create Audio/Video playlist.

 

How Admin Can Create Video Playlist

  • To create a new Playlist, go to “Manage Content” -->Manage Playlist” in your CMS
  • Under “Manage Playlist”, click on “Create a Playlist
  • Type a “Title” for your playlist (For example, “Top Movies of The Month”)
  • Select a “Category” from the list (For Example, if you are making playlist of action movies then select “Action Movie”. You can also select multiple categories by holding the CTRL key)
  • In the "Content Type" field, select "Video" from the drop-down.
  • Upload a “Poster” for your playlist.
  • Finally, click on “Save Playlist

Your new playlist will be created and listed under Manage Playlist.

 

 

Adding Videos to Playlist

After creating the playlist, you need to add different videos of your choice to the playlist.

  • To add videos to the Playlist, go to “Manage Content” --> “Content Library” in your CMS
  • On the extreme right-hand side of a specific video, click on “Add to Playlist
  • A window will open with the list of Playlists. Select the Playlist to which you want to add the video
  • Click on “Ok” to complete the process

That specific video will be added to your playlist. Likewise, you can add as many videos as you want to your playlist.

Note:

  • You can only add single part content i.e. single video to the playlist.
  • You cannot add multi-part content i.e. an entire show to the playlist. However, you can add any single episode (child content) from the multi-part content to the playlist.
  • Also, you cannot add the  videos which have third party video links (i.e. YouTube, Vimeo) embedded to them. When users click on "Play All" or try to auto play the playlist, these third party videos will not play as they have different players associated with them. 

 

 

How End Users Access Playlist

After login to your website, the end users can view the Playlist under a specific content category (e.g. Movie, Action Movie, Documentary). You can also add the Playlist to the Feature Content section of your Homepage.

When the users click on the Playlist, they can view all the videos listed under it. Users can click on any video to play it or they can play all the videos by clicking on "Play All".

Note:

  • Playlist feature for video is only supported in "Revo" and "Modern" template. 
  • Users can only play the content in the playlist for which they have access to (That means, if they have purchased the content via PPV or Subscription)
  • If you are an existing customer of Muvi, then the video Playlist will not be accessible to your users by default. To make it accessible to the users, you need to modify you template code.
