What are Web Players

Web Players (formerly Embedded Players) are a combination of Playlists and Public Sharing. They allow you to group together a series of videos that will play back sequentially within a web browser. This makes them ideal for one-off use, sharing a group of content with others via email, or for embedding on a webpage for other to see.

Note: In order for a web player to show content, the individual items included must also be marked "Allow Public Access". This is an extra security measure as web players are publicly available on the web to anyone with the URL, and therefore require explicit public allowance set per item.
