Customizing the embed code for your playlist allows you to control the appearance and functionality of your playlist when you want to publish it on a website hosted by a 3rd party platform, rather than a SproutVideo landing page.

Creating a custom embed code allows you to change the width and height of the playlist, set your playlist to autoplay, change the layout, select standard definition or high definition as the default setting for playback, load player presets, and change the playlist colors.

How to Customize a Playlist Embed Code

Navigate to the Playlists page, click on the playlist you'd like to embed, and click on "Customize this Embed Code" to get started. Then, make the changes you'd like to make, and click "Update this Embed Code" before you copy and paste the new embed code to your site:

Please note that to show or hide controls, you will need to create a custom player preset, and then load that player preset when customizing your playlist embed code. Player presets are not the same as playlist presets. Please refer to our article on customizing a video embed code for more details on how to create a custom player preset:
