Use Playlists

  • Updated

Playlists give you more control over how you present your content to your audience. You can display saved videos to your audience in a format that is sequential or grouped by topic. 

This feature requires a Content Library subscription. Learn more

How Playlists Work

You can create a playlist from one or more saved videos. Playlists are embedded in a web page the same way you would embed a video from Resi.

Embedded playlists default to display the first video in the playlist. Users can click the playlist icon in the upper right corner of the video player to view all the videos in the playlist. Users can also click the Next icon to skip ahead to the next video in the playlist.

Playlists can include a maximum of 100 videos. We recommend that you group videos into playlists by topic, series, or by a limited date range. Playlists with a large number of videos may be difficult for your viewers to navigate by requiring an excessive amount of scrolling to find content. (You can also embed more than one playlist in a page.)
