I've had a lot of requests lately for how I was able to make dynamic playlists in Drupal for use with the jwplayer. This screencast is all about how you can use Drupal, Views, Views bonus pack, Imagecache, Imagefield, embedded media fields, and jwplayer (module) in order to do this. There is some simple theming involved (which I've included the file) as well as a pretty basic view that needs to be constructed in order to make this all work.
Here are some potential use-cases of having dynamic playlist generation in Drupal:
- Create playlists on the fly for individual nodes while only needing to know the address of the video you want to play
- Creating video portals that can provide an alternate way of navigating your site's media (looks sweet too)
- Create awesome video players for your content with minimal knowledge about how to do it (no more object embed code!)
- Mix in some argument / taxonomy goodness and I think you can start to see the potential
Enjoy the recipe and if you have any questions / comments / ways of expanding this functionality please leave some feedback here!
