What is a Playlist?

A Playlist is a term we use when putting your images, videos, web pages, and widgets (collectively known as assets within Signagelive) one item after another on a timeline, which will then be order content is displayed when published to your display. A Playlist is how you would show your images, videos, web pages, and widgets (collectively known as assets within Signagelive) one item after another on your display.

Please Note:

A Playlist will always fill either the display or the zone (within a layout) it is published to.

Each Playlist can be as simple as a collection of images playing one after another for a duration of your choosing, or alternatively, a mixture of any supported media types, and will loop for as long as you publish this playlist for, for instance, indefinitely looping all day, every day.
