New Playlist Creator updates


We have made some of the iterative improvements to our New Playlist Creator whilst still within it's Beta testing phase, both as a result of the excellent feedback provided by our trusted users and from bugs and improvements we found whilst testing internally. 

Here's a video to show you some of the changes made and new features introduced.


You can also see a concise breakdown of the change log below.

As well as this, we still have an open community article where you can discuss both the new and old (or Flash v HTML5) Playlist Creators in all their glory. You can get to that article by clicking on this link .
