Another day, another new feature release for Brid! We want to introduce you to our new Brid.Tv update – Brid’s playlist widget. This is a new type of widget which takes in a user created playlist and displays them in a different manner.

The widget is made to be responsive so it is mobile friendly and also has a different, more touch friendly user interface when rendered on mobile.Take a look at the widget in action:

On the top, you will find the player which will playback items from the playlist. At the bottom of the widget you will find a thumbnail representation of the videos in your playlist. By clicking on any thumb, playback of that video item will commence.

Main widget features:

  • Currently, the playlist widget will always show 3 items. If your playlist contains more than 3 items, the widget will show prev/next buttons on hover to the right and left of the playlist thumb display.
  • The maximum amount of videos the playlist widget can hold is 20. If you try to add a playlist which contains more than 20 items, the widget will only show the first 20 items.
  • You can create a playlist widget from added YouTube videos or from your own be them uploaded to Brid or externally added. All types of video monetization are also supported as is autoplay.
  • The widget currently comes in 3 color flavors. Dark, light and transparent so it can blend with almost any site.
