Hi! Everyone, hope you all are fine.
Today in this post I will tell you how you can create playlist using JW Player. As I told in my last post that few readers asked me how they can create Playlist using JW Player and how they can host files of JW Player in Google code. So in last post I told you how you can host files in Google code and if you want to know how to use and earn from JW Player Click here.
To make a playlist using JW Player you need to have an XML file where you will put all the videos link of your playlist.
Here how you can create JW Player Playlist XML file
1. Open notepad in your computer

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <playlist version='1' xmlns='http://xspf.org/ns/0/'> <trackList> <track> <title>Video Name</title> <location>Video URL</location> <annotation>Video Description</annotation> <duration>Video Length (Time)</duration> </track> </trackList> </playlist>
Now copy the bold portion and paste it after </track> as much time you want (as much video will be in a playlist)
3. Now change few things
i) Video Name With the name of the video
ii) Video URL with the URL of the video
iii) Video Description With the video description
iv) Video Length (Time) with the video length
Note: – Every time put different Name, URL, Description and Length
4. After you made the playlist save that file
i) Press Crtl+S (for save option)
ii) Now change the Save as type: from Text Documents (*.txt) to All files (*.*)
iii) An give the name of the file and after the name give .xml
iv) Then click Save button
5. Now upload this file to Google code hosting server or on your hosting server
