Creating a Playlist

Adding Content to a Playlist


Playlists are used for playing back video and audio in a particular sequence. In Aggregion, this function is only available for videos. A catalog item may only be added to one playlist. Only the owner, i.e. the copyright holder may create a playlist, arranging videos in the catalog in a particular order.
User playlists are based on those specified by the copyright holder in its own playlist.
A user playlist would exclude any items that were not made available to that particular user.
