If you have a series of related videos that you want to present together, or a long video you want to cut into shorter pieces, creating a playlist may be a good solution. Today I’ll talk about setting up a series of related videos using a playlist.
So what is a playlist? It’s a series of videos that play one after another from start to finish. For example we use a playlist for our blogs, but they’re also great for training videos, frequently asked questions, client testimonials… any series of related videos.
YouTube offers an easy way to create and manage your playlists through your “Video Manager.” To create a new one , click the “playlist” tab and select “new playlist.” Then find the videos you’d like to add and click “add to” and select the appropriate playlist. It’s that simple!
Once you’ve created a playlist and added videos, you can arrange the order they are played.
The viewer has the option of watching the list in the order you’ve set, or picking and choosing videos within the list.
Also, include a title and description for your playlists. To add them, just click on the little pencil icon to open the text edit.
Make sure the title tells viewers exactly what kind of videos they’ll see.
We hope this was helpful. Feel free to check out some of our other videos, and if you have any questions, just give us a call at 314-843-3663 that’s 314-VIDEO ME.
