Video Play list

You can create a list on your editor and then in the side panel in advanced, anchor set it to “bvideo_playlist”.

Also you can edit the HTML and create List with id = bvideo_playlist:

<ol id="bvideo_playlist">
    <li><a href="">Animation: Rotating Earth at Night</a></li>
    <li><a href="">Radiation Belt Storm Probes Launch</a></li>
    <li><a href="">Dropping in on Mars in High-Res</a></li>
    <li><a href="">GRAIL Launches on Mission to Moon</a></li>
    <li><a href="">Space Launch System Animation</a></li>

You can also add in your HTML/JS file a playlist array and will create your list magically, the size field it’s optional:

var video_playlist = [
        "name": "Animation: Rotating Earth at Night",
        "link": "",
        "size": 55000000,
        "name": "Radiation Belt Storm Probes Launch",
        "link": "",
        "size": 475000000,
        "name": "Dropping in on Mars in High-Res",
        "link": "",
        "size": 105000000,
