Export playlists to syndication channels

Learn how to syndicate content from your JW Platform


Using RSS and JSON feeds, you can export video content from your media library to syndication channels. The RSS and JSON feeds provide syndicators with information about the hosted or registered videos in your JWP account. With this additional information, you can seamlessly aggregate and distribute content through external channels and platforms.

๐Ÿšง

Ingest requirements vary between syndication platforms. It is the publisherโ€™s responsibility to format feeds according to the syndication platformโ€™s specifications. Contact your syndication partner with questions.

Exporting more than 500 videos

When exporting playlists containing many videos, be mindful of the following information:

  • A playlist must have less than 10,001 videos. JWP cannot page over a result set of more than 10,000 items.
  • When making pagination requests, occasionally duplicates occur or an item is skipped.

  1. From your list of playlists, click the name of a dynamic playlist.
  2. Under the playlist Developers tab, copy the RSS URL or JSON URL.
  3. Add page_limit (500 or less) and page_offset (multiples of 500 or less) parameters to the RSS or JSON URLs for each batch of 500 videos to be exported.

FAQ

Can a playlist be exported without including custom parameters?

Yes. You can take replace format=mrss with format=partner_rss in the RSS URL.

https://cdn.jwplayer.com/v2/playlists/{playlist_id}?format=partner_rss

Changing the format to partner_rss aligns RSS with the specifications of content syndicators, such as MSN and Verizon Media.


Why aren't changes made to a playlist reflected in the export URL?

There is a potential that information could be cached for several minutes.
