Make a Playlist for Ensemble Media Library

Playlists are great ways to tailor content in a library for specific material. For example, if there are 3 videos on the human body in your library of 8 videos you can make a playlist that consists of only the 3 human body videos. When the playlist link is sent out it will list only the videos that you want to be displayed and not the entirety of your library.

A playlist is a selection of customized orders songs or videos that you can publish and stream within Ensemble, or link to Nexus, Muse, Cascade, web pages, or iPads.
