A series of videos can be played on a DAKboard screen using the YouTube Playlist feature. In this article, we outline the steps to make this possible. These steps are intended to be completed in a desktop browser and used with a DAKboard Custom Screen.
NOTE: DAKboard cannot play videos marked as Private. If you are uploading a Video to play you will need to set this to Public. If you are adding another user shared Video, ask them to set the Video to Public.
Create your YouTube Playlist:
On youtube.com, browse to the first video you would like in your loop/playlist and click the save button at the bottom right of the video.
From the Pop-up window choose Create new playlist:
Add a Name to Identify your Playlist, then set your privacy settings. Your list will need to be created Public to be able to work with DAKboard. Private and Unlisted will not work. See below:
NOTE: You will be prompted to create a channel if you do not already have one in your account.
Browse all of the additional videos you would like in the playlist and save them in the same manner and select your playlist:
Visit your playlist by opening the menu on the top left of the screen shown below:
Click "Play All", or "Shuffle", which will open your playlist.
Wait for the first video in your playlist to start playing as the URL may change a little, then copy the URL that shows Immediately after the first video starts from the URL bar as seen below:
This URL is the one you need to enter in your YouTube Block in DAKBoard.
Add your Playlist to DAKboard:
With your URL copied, create a new YouTube Block in our DAKboard custom screen. Click ADD A BLOCK in the top right of the editor, search, and select or search for the YouTube Block.
Double-click your new YouTube Block to enter the Block editor. Paste the URL copied into the URL field and click save. Resize the block to your desired size and enjoy!
