Create and configure playlists for videos

What is the Playlists feature?

Playlists are a free feature that allows you to merge several videos into one playlist and play them alternately.

Enable the Playlists feature

To enable the feature, send us a request via support@gcore.com or the chat window in the bottom-right corner of our website. Please specify your ID in the request, so we can identify your account. You can find it on the main page in the Gcore Customer Portal.

Enable the Playlists feature

The message template: "Greetings! Please enable the Playlists feature for the account with ID … (your ID)".

We will notify you when the feature is enabled. After that, you will be able to use it for your account.
