How do you build a video playlist using YouTube content?  en

I am busy rebuilding one of my sites. The original was built in FrontPage 98 which, due to the limitations of classic HTML, would not allow me to create a single video player with a list of titles to play. The consequence was that my video gallery has 18 separate videos on the same page (see www.liquidass.fr/galerie.html).

Personally, I think that looks bad and it also means that each video has to load its thumbnail image which, dependent on the load being applied to YouTube's servers, can take some time.

What I would like to do with the remake site is provide a list of video descriptions as a playlist so that when the visitor clicks on a link the video he has chosen pops up as a video player in the foreground while the rest of the page goes dark or blurred. I have seen this done on other sites so was wondering howit can be done with X5? I am using v11 Professional by the way.

...between the objects to create a page you can find "video and sound"; before you need to publish online your video, after in this object, write the relative url and the description; I think you have automatic thumbnail, as well...

Thank you for your reply Gabrile however that allows just one video. What I want is a playlist.

Maybe I can achieve it with a different program?

Hello Adrian,

This can only be done by using a custom HTML code which you can add in the HTML code object in step 3.

Many thanks!

Do you know of a program that can create that please Claudio?
I remember years ago CoffeeCup offered one but they removed it from their product list so either it had problems or it was superceded by something else.

Hello Adrian,

Unfortunately I don't know any program you could use. You can wait to see if someone else of the community knows a program with allows you to create a youtube playlist.

Many thanks!
