Video Playlist Widget

(YouTube or Vimeo)

What is a Video Playlist Widget?

This widget pulls in a playlist from YouTube or Vimeo. It is a dynamic widget--meaning when you post a new video to the playlist on Vimeo or YouTube, it will also flow into the playlist widget on your site. This is a great way to display multiple videos & serve up a lot of video content to your customers!
