The playlist search plugin allows your users to search across your entire video or audio library.

Works Almost Anywhere

Playlist Search works out of the box with many different video players.

Video Search for Large Video Libraries & Playlists

Search results are displayed on visual timelines for all relevant media files. You can expand a segment to view its corresponding transcript or begin playing the media from that exact point. As the publisher, you can define the group of videos being searched. You can also apply custom styling and turn features on and off.

Within the transcript the user has searched for robots, and the word is highlighted where it appears in the transcript. In the playlist the user has searched linguistics and each video featuring that word is shown with the number of times the word is mentioned

Playlist Search Support for Wistia and Vimeo

Our Playlist Search plugin now supports integrations for Wistia and Vimeo, allowing your users to search across your entire video or audio libraries.

The Playlist Search plugin already has out of the box integrations with YouTube, Brightcove, Kaltura, and thePlatform. Expanding support for Wistia and Vimeo has allowed publishers to share even more content with their audience through searchable playlists and corresponding interactive transcripts.

How does this work:

  • You must have linked accounts with Wistia and Vimeo
  • You must have the Playlist Search module turned on
  • You must have Content Publishing turned on
  • You must have at least one video transcribed in your linked account to access an embed code for the playlist

If all the above applies, you can navigate to the Settings page in the 3Play account system, then go to the Playlist Search module page, and copy the embed code into one of your HTML pages. The embed code contains your video player, interactive transcript and searchable playlist.
