In this tutorial, we are going to look at how you can easily create a video playlist on your WordPress website, just like creating image galleries.
Creating a playlist helps you keep your videos together in a single post, and your site visitors can play all of them from the same post or page.
So, let’s get started.
As usual, click the Add Media button, and then upload all your video files. You can just drag and drop all your files to the media uploader.
The Media Library is usually filled with all types of media that you’ve uploaded to other posts and pages. If you want to view video files that you’ve uploaded only to this post, go to Create Video Playlist found on the left side of your screen.
From here, you can select or deselect any files that you want in your video playlist.
You can also add title, caption, and description for each clip.
Once you’re done, click on the Create a new video playlist button.
From Edit Audio Playlist, you can change the sorting order of your video clips. To do so, simply drag and drop the files to arrange them.
In the Playlist Settings section, you can choose to show the tracklist and show images. WordPress will automatically try to fetch the album cover artwork that’s present in your media file. If you don’t want to display any image, simply deselect the Show images option.
Once you’re satisfied, click on the Insert video playlist button. WordPress will then insert your newly created video playlist in the visual editor.
If you don’t like what you’re seeing, you can re-edit or tweak your playlist by clicking on the pencil icon.
Click on Publish to publish your new post or page.
So that’s how to create a video playlist on your WordPress website. Wasn’t it easy?
