      Dacast allows you to create Playlists to group multiple videos into a single player that you can embed anywhere to allow the playback of several videos in one place.

      These video content management tools help you keep your content organized and accessible. 

      Start with a Folder

      Before you create a Playlist you’ll need to create a Folder to populate the Playlist from. 

      All you have to do is to create a Folder on the “Folder” section of your Dacast dashboard, type a name, and click “Create.” 

      From there, you can add some videos to that folder and you’re ready to create a Playlist.

      How to Create Your Playlist

      Creating a Playlist takes just a few clicks:

      1. Select “Playlist” from the side panel 
      2. Click the “Create Playlist” button on the right side of the screen
      3. Enter a “Playlist Title”
      4. Click “Create” to save 
      5. Go to the “Setup” tab to see the folder that you made

      Playlist Settings

      Playlists have a number of settings, including:

      • The “On” and “Off” switch to make your playlist available or not
      • Thumbnail, Splash Screen, and Poster
      • Embed codes (Iframe and JavaScript)
      • Sharelink for direct viewing

      How to Embed Your Playlist on Your Website

      To embed your playlist on your website, go to the “General” tab, and scroll to the bottom. You’ll see the iframe and JavaScript embed codes
