The `PlaylistItem` class enables you to add content to your player and define the unique characteristics of that content:

  • Title

  • Description

  • Poster image

  • Media ID

<br />

There are multiple ways to load and play content in your player. As best practice approaches, we recommend the following:

  • Use `PlayerConfig.Builder()` to create single-item or multiple-item playlists with media hosted in your JWP account

  • Use `PlaylistItem.Builder()` to create single-item or multiple-item playlists with self-hosted media

  • Use `PlayerConfig.Builder()` to associate a playlist to a player and to initiate media playback

ο»Ώ

While you can use other approaches to create, associate, and play playlists, `PlaylistItem.Builder()` and `PlayerConfig.Builder()` enable you to add functionality like customization and advertising.

<br />

The following sections explain how to create a single-item playlist, create a multiple-item playlist, and add multiple sources to a playlist item.

## JWP-hosted Content

When your content is hosted with JWP, the metadata added to a media item when it is uploaded to your account is used in your mobile app. Additionally, you have the ability to query the Analytics API to access SDK video metrics.
