With a playlist, you can engage your viewers with a collection of your videos. JWP allows you to create several types of playlists: manual, dynamic, trending, recommendations, search, and article matching.

<br />

The table and sections below explain the usage and implementation of each type of playlist.

<table> <thead> <tr> <th> Type </th> <th> Description </th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td width="25%"><strong><a href="/platform/docs/vdh-create-a-dynamic-playlist">Dynamic</a></strong></td> <td width="75%">A Dynamic playlist automatically orders videos based on a sort type. The possible sort types are:<br /><br /> <ul> <li><strong>Publish Date</strong> (default): Date that the media items were published</li> <li><strong>Duration</strong>: Duration of the media items</li> <li><strong>Plays</strong>: Lifetime number of times the media items have been played</li> <li><strong>Title</strong>: First letter of the media title</li> <li><strong>Trending</strong>: Most popular videos, based on play count</li> <li><strong>Shuffle</strong>: Randomizes the order of videos with every un-cached playlist request</li> </ul> You can also define tag rules to include or exclude videos with certain tags. Dynamic playlists are limited to a <strong>maximum of 500 videos</strong>. <br /><br /> When an editor adds new videos to the library that match the rules you have defined, the new videos will be automatically added to the playlist. </td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong><a href="/platform/docs/vdh-create-a-manual-playlist">Manual</a></strong></td> <td>A Manual playlist allows you to create and order a static list of videos. Unless you update the playlist, neither the list of videos nor the video order changes after the playlist has been created. Manual playlists are limited to a <strong>maximum of 500 videos</strong>. <br /><br /> You can use manual playlists to feature videos you want to display in a specific order. </td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong><a href="/platform/docs/vdh-create-a-search-playlist">Search</a></strong></td> <td>A Search playlist creates a list of videos in your library based on a keyword search. Search playlists are limited to a <strong>maximum of 100 videos</strong>.</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong><a href="/platform/docs/vdh-create-an-article-matching-playlist">Article Matching</a></strong></td> <td>An Article Matching playlist inserts contextually relevant videos into your articles. Article Matching playlists are limited to a <strong>maximum of 100 videos</strong>.</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong><a href="/platform/docs/vdh-create-a-recommendations-playlist">Recommendations</a></strong></td> <td>A Recommendations or <em>feed</em> playlist serves videos based on the first video that a viewer watches. The recommendations are selected by using a blend of two proprietary methodologies: a version of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Association_rule_learning" target="_blank">association rule mining</a> and content similarity of videos. Recommendations playlists are limited to a <strong>maximum of 100 videos</strong>. <br /><br /> If the recommendations algorithm cannot find any videos using the methodologies above, trending videos are served. </td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
