Playlist order

Hello,

Are there any plans to add more control for the order in which videos are presented in a playlist?

It's quite time consuming to replace all of the videos in a playlist just because one needs to be updated and replaced.

Best regards,
Kevin

    Hello Kevin

    Thanks for contacting us. There are no plans to change the way that playlists are managed in the near future. The playlist feature was designed to be quick and easy to use so the flip-side is that it's not that flexible or customizable.

    That said, you don't need to replace all the videos in a playlist to re-order it - playlists can be sorted by title so you could just update the titles of the videos in the playlist and resave it.

    Regards

    Alasdair

    For my purposes, unfortunately, this is counter-intuitive because I don't want to have my playlist items read as a list.

    Additionally, this would prohibit me from using the same video in two playlists and have it ordered appropriately.

    So, unfortunately this makes the entire process time consuming and difficult as opposed to quick and easy.

    Yes - that is the immediate issue with using titles to order. At this time, there's no simple solution I am afraid.

    We do log all such feedback formally and I'll feed this back into our list of feature requests.
