Creating Playlist

How to create and share playlists

Playlists are a useful tool to gather selected scenes in one location to give team meetings, presentations, and create highlight videos. Playlists can also be exported so that you can upload them to other platforms.

what are playlists?

Playlists are a useful tool that allows you to gather multiple scenes from different game footages in one location. It is especially useful when preparing for team meetings and highlight videos. Playlists can also be exported as an MP4 file so that you can upload and share to other platforms.  

To create a playlist or to add to an existing playlist, select the scenes by clicking at the “+” on the top left of each scene card. 

To do this step, it is useful to use the color code filter at the top to only show one single category of tags.

Once all of the scenes have been selected, click on “Create Playlist from Selection” at the bottom left of the screen.

When you click on “Create Playlist from Selection”, it will display these options.

You can either select to create a new playlist (New List) or select to add to an existing list (Add to List).

I will demonstrate the process of creating a new playlist since both steps are very similar.

When you click on “New List”, it will take you to this screen. Here you can name the playlist, set the destination folder (“Mine” or “Shared”), and add a tag to the playlist to be searched easier when you have several playlists. 

Click on “Create” at the bottom right to create a new playlist.

Click on the Playlist icon at the top right of the screen to view the scenes that are inside of a playlist. 

Playlists can de be searched by keyword, date, or by tag that is attached to the playlist. 

You can also create a folder to share with other coaching staff and players. To do so, click on “New Folder” at the bottom left of the screen, name the folder, and click ok.

Once the folder has been created, click on the share button to set who has access to the folder. 

When you click on the share button, it will take you to this screen. Here you can select who to share the folder by “Channel”, “Player”, or “Staff”. 

In this example, I have selected the “Coaches” channel to share the folder. 

Click on “Complete” at the bottom right to finish setting up the sharing option.

When you click on a playlist, it will take you to this screen. Here you can make edits to the playlist name, order/titling of scenes inside the playlist, and the scenes themselves.

Be careful not to get confused by three edit buttons on the screen. The edit button on the top left is for editing the name, and “EDIT” on the bottom right is for editing the scene itself.

To make edits to the playlist, meaning reordering and inserting a title slide between scenes, click on the edit button on the bottom left. 

When you click on the edit button on the bottom left, it will take you to this screen. 

There are two ways to reorder scenes. The first option is to swap orders by clicking at either the up or down arrow. The second option is to select the scene position by clicking at the number on the top left corner of each scene card and choosing the position from the drop-down menu. 

In addition to reordering, you can display a scene title before playing the video. To do so, click on “Insert Title” that is at the top of each scene card. 

When you click on “Insert Title”, it will take you to this screen. To type the title, use the text box that is located on the center bottom of the screen.

You can also set how long to display the title slide before playing the video. The default length is set at 5 seconds, but you can change this by selecting a different length from the drop-down menu. 

Click on “Save” which is located on the bottom right to insert the title slide.

You also have the option to export the playlist as an MP4 file. This allows you to upload and share the video to other platforms.

To export the video, click on “EXPORT” at the bottom right corner of the screen.
