Set a maximum duration per playslist/show
set a maximum duration per (sub)playlist or show, the user can not exceed this time.
for example : I have lot of playlists on a monitor.
the #1 show corporate video (the duration is automatic) and the others are managed by different services but they only have the ability to broadcast a message for 30 seconds.
We should be able to assign a maximum duration for each playlist
and keep control of the total duration of the broadcast loop.
Sub-Playlist Restrictions are here!
When you add a Playlist as an item in another Playlist, then a “Options” button appears. Click it will allow you set the Max-Time and/or Max-Items. The first will define the total Playback time allow for each iteration of that Sub-Playlist, while the second will restrict the number of items played back. When using any of the two options and a Playlist is interrupted, the next playback of the Playlist will be picked up from the next item.
These two can be combined to have the effect described by the original poster of the idea. Sub-Playlists are only available in the “Pro” and “Enterprise” plans, so you will need to be on that plan to use Restrictions for Sub-Playlists.
Combine with access rights and Workspaces, this can be ideal for managing distributed content managers that need to be limited on the total screen time!
