Choose a playlist type

Enter your playlist name and then select whether you want to create a one shot or loop playlist.

A one-shot playlist starts whenever a viewer presses play. Each viewer starts the playlist in the order you designate and plays to the end, unless they choose to stop at any point.

A loop playlist acts like a live TV channel. Media Manager plays and loops the playlist. Each viewer joins the playlist, already in progress. At the end of the playlist, the system will start at the beginning.
