Multimedia Playlist Members

Use this dialog to view, add, or modify the list of video or multimedia files contained within your playlists.

Access this dialog from My Content - My Multimedia Playlists or Reports by clicking a link in the Members column or by choosing Manage Members from the More Actions icon for an individual playlist.

You can click and drag to reposition single files, or select multiple files to reposition. Clicking and dragging sets playback order.

Note that this dialog remains open in edit mode to allow you to make multiple changes in the same session. To help protect your work, CommonSpot displays an alert if you make a change without saving it or if you attempt to close the dialog without saving your changes.
