Synchronized Sort Order

The sort order of Zype playlist items and corresponding MAZ playlist feed items are synchronized. In other words, when the sort order of videos in a Zype playlist is updated, the MAZ playlist feed will also be updated to reflect the new sort order. 

Nested Playlists

Nested playlists (playlists within a playlist) are not supported at this time. The feed URL of each underlying playlist will need to be copied and imported into the MAZ platform.
