Playlists

In addition to allowing you to organize your Media Library, you can use folders to share a series of related videos together. You can do so by creating a folder in VIUTube and then pasting the embed code for that folder into your website or VIULearn course. You can add VIUTube video or audio files, or imported YouTube media into a folder. You can add videos that contain quizzes into a folder, however it is worth noting that the quiz version of the video will not be included if you embed the entire folder itself into a website or VIULearn course. 

Create and Add Videos to a Folder

  1. Login to VIUTube and navigate to the Manage Media area. 

  2. Select New Folder, enter a name for the folder, and click Save. 

  3. Drag and drop the desired videos into the new folder. If you wish to add more videos to your folder, you can do so at anytime by dragging and dropping more videos into the folder. You can also upload new VIUTube videos directly into the folder by navigating into the folder and then using upload interface or by dragging and dropping the videos into the folder. 

Editing Folders

If you have already created a folder, you can remove and re-order the items in your existing folder.

  1. Navigate to Manage Media from the top of the screen. 

  2. Click on the name of your folder. 

  3. To re-order the media in your folder, click, drag, and drop the video into it's new desired location. You will see a pink box surrounding your video, which will indicate where your video will currently be placed if you let go of the mouse button.

  4. To remove media from a playlist, drag and drop the video into the My Media area or into another folder located in the navigation menu on the left hand side of the screen. You will see a dotted line surrounding the My Media or folder heading, which will indicate that your video will be successfully sent to folder if you let go of the mouse button. 

Share a VIUTube Folder

Once you have created a VIUTube playlist, you can share this playlist with others by providing them with a direct link to the playlist on VIUTube. Alternatively, you may wish to embed the playlist directly into a website or VIULearn course:

  1. In your Manage Media area, hover over the folder you wish to share and click on the Settings wheel in the upper right corner.

  2. Select More… from the dropdown menu. 

  3. Choose Links from the Media Details page that appears.

  4. Copy and paste the link or embed code. Link or embed the playlist into the desired website or location using the standard procedure.
