Create a Search playlist

A search playlist creates a list of videos in your library based on a keyword search. Search playlists are limited to a maximum of 100 videos.


If you are a developer or have developer resources, you can use the Management API to create a search playlist.

When updates are made to playlists, there may be up to 3 minutes of caching in JWP's systems before the changes are reflected. Web browsers also cache playlist content and can be cleared.

Use the following steps to create a search playlist:

  1. From the Playlists page, click Create Playlist. A popup window appears.
  2. Click the Search title. The playlist settings page appears.
  3. On the SETUP tab, replace Untitled Search Playlist with a Title for the playlist.
  4. (Optional) In the Filter by Tag section, define tag rules that determine which videos to Include in or Exclude from the playlist.
  5. (Optional) In the Promoted Content section, select an existing manual, dynamic, or trending playlist from the dropdown menu. A single video will be randomly chosen from each selected playlist. You can select a maximum of two playlists to promote.
  6. (Optional) In the List Length section, enter the maximum number of videos to display in the playlist. If no number is entered, the list length will default to 10 videos.
  7. Click SAVE.

You can now use these results to create a playlist based on a keyword.
