A video playlist allows you to create one video player that plays multiple video clips. The user can pick and choose which video clips to play, or it can be set up to auto-play which will automatically play each clip.
Video playlists can be embedded on your content, department or portal pages. The video playlist player has a responsive design option so it will adjust to the screen size on any desktop or mobile device. A user will be able to view the embedded video clips directly from your pages.
*Note: Before a Video Playlist can be set up, it is necessary to add a new video player for each video file first. Please see How to Set Up a Video Player.
Here is an example of an embedded video playlist:
