Using Playlists

vzaar allows you to create a playlist so that you can group videos into a player and allow your audience to select which one they can playback.

Before you get started

Before you can create a playlist, you need to add labels the videos which will form your playlist.

Please look at this post to learn more about creating labels.

Configuring your playlist settings

You can set global defaults for your playlists by going to  settings/playlist_podcast. From there, you can:

  • choose whether to list the videos in ascending or descending order
  • sort by title or date
  • choose the thumbnail position for the Flash player.
  • set the maximum number of videos that can be listed within a playlist.

As a global setting, it's worth choosing a high value and controlling the number of videos within a playlist with descriptive labelling if you have many different requirements.

Embedding your playlist within a webpage

Click the playlists tab at the top of any vzaar page. Here, you can click Create New Playlist and choose the settings you require. If you need more advanced sorting, you can rename your videos with a numbered prefix. Sorting by title will then order the videos using the numbers you chose.

Once you've chosen which label you want to use to generate the playlist, click 'Save' and you will be shown a preview of your playlist and the embed code to use.
