Playlists and Chapter Points Using UB Stream

Playlists

Playlists allow you to create a list of your favorite clips and have them display at the bottom of your screen. You can have as many clips in a playlist as you want, scrolling left and right when playlist gets full to view all the items. You can also create several playlists to host different types of media according to your needs.

Enable the playlist in the My Account area of the Media Library, and add content to the playlists on the playback page when you view clips.

Chapter Points

Chapter points can be created for clips that are long and will benefit from segmentation to draw attention to particular points of interest. They can be added and modified by the contributor of the clip or by a Media Library administrator.

When chapter points are added to a clip, the original is not modified at all. Chapter points can be added and deleted leaving the uploaded clip in its original state.
