Creating a Playlist

This powerful feature comes free with the standard ViewMedica Web subscription. Display playlists on your website and use them in your office to educate your patients -- just hit play and walk away.

1. After logging in to your account dashboard, click ViewMedica's Playlists icon.

2. If you have no Playlists, you will see a green box that says, "Get Started with Playlists." Click on the "Create Playlist" button. If you already have one or more Playlists, you will see the Playlists on the left side of the page. Above that list of playlists, you'll see a "New Playlist" button -- click this to create a new Playlist.

3. First, enter in the new Playlist's title. This title will be shown in the ViewMedica menu system. Use a descriptive name so you and your patients can easily find it in your ViewMedica menu.

4. To add a ViewMedica video, select the blue "Add ViewMedica Video" button. Select all the videos you want to put in the current Playlist. Hit the "Save" button.

5. To add Custom Content, select the blue "Add Custom Content" button. You have many options here: You can create a new text slide, image slide or video item — or, you can choose from your list of existing custom content that you created previously for other Playlists.

6. Items in a Playlist can be grabbed and dragged to new positions in the list. This is how you change the Playlist order.

7. When done, hit the "Preview" tab to review the Playlist. If you want to embed the Playlist on its own page in your site, select the "Embed Code" tab. Otherwise, you can find the Playlist in your ViewMedica menu embedded on your website by going to the Playlists menu from the ViewMedica main screen.

8. By default, your Playlist is set to be "Public," which means that it is live within your ViewMedica player under the Playlists menu item in your main menu. Everyone has access to a Public Playlist. If you do not want the Playlist to be Public, go to the “Settings” tab. There you can change it to "Private".

9. You can also change the poster image used by the playlist in the “Settings” tab. And you can edit the playlist title there, too.

10. Other settings you can change are turning off the skip feature, setting the captions to automatically come on, make the playlist repeat all ViewMedica videos in English and Spanish or play one language while captions show in the other language.
