Manual Playlists

The system currently supports the addition of "manual" playlists directly within the UI. Manual playlists contain media objects that have been added to the playlist manually.

Search-Based Playlists

The system currently supports the addition of "search" playlists directly within the UI. Search playlists are automatically updated to contain media objects whose metadata contains the keywords specified in the search:
