My Multimedia Playlists

Creating multimedia playlists is a multi-step process of choosing a channel & subsite location, naming a playlist and defining its attributes, then adding playlist members. You can create multimedia playlists in CommonSpot using files stored on Brightcove or YouTube servers, for services enabled for your site. Local services do not support playlists.

Access this dialog from My Content to create new playlists, to view, copy, edit, or delete playlists that you own, or to view or change metadata or other playlist attributes.

To view items for which you are the owner, set filtering and ordering criteria, including which subsite levels to include and date restrictions.The defaults for these options are set through Site Administration - Properties and Settings - Report Settings. See Report Settings in the Administrator's Reference.

You can filter using the following options. Make your selections, then click the Filter button to apply and display items that meet your criteria.

Use Select Date Options to set the date that displays in the Date column. (Use the Date Restrictions search criteria to constrain results by specific dates.) Pick from the dropdown. A green checkmark indicates the current filter. Optionally choose from the following:

Click to sort by column head.

Date defaults to the order specified in Select Date Options setting.
