Add a screen

Use the following steps to create a library screen and add your content to that screen:

  1. On the Libraries tab, click Add Library. A library settings card appears.
  2. In the Library Name field, enter the name of the library screen. This name will also appear in the main menu of the app.
  3. From the Playlist dropdown menu, select a playlist that contains the media items to display on this library screen. If no options appear in the dropdown menu, you must create a new dynamic or manual playlist.
  4. Under Tags, set all the tags associated with the videos in the playlist. In the app, these tags will enable a view to filter the videos on a screen. These tags will appear as buttons or as options in a dropdown menu.
  5. Click Update.
