X-Pert Playout Playlist

X-Pert Playout works with play playlists (play order).

You can easily create a playlist manually, just by drag-n-dropping files into X-Pert Playout grid (or in X-Pert List).

It is also possible to create a playlist with any third party application software. It is necessary that this application can create playlists in a format, compatible with X-Pert Playout.

The X-Pert Playout playlist format is described in details in X-Pert Playout SDK. For obtaining X-Pert Playout SDK, please contact X-Pert Support team for further assistance on chat button https://x-pert.tv/support/, via e-mail at support@x-pert.tv or phone +359 8 77 66 33 51.

X-Pert Playout also provides a possibility to import playlists from simple text files (tab delimited or comma separated text files).

There are two workflows with X-Pert Playout playlists: ordinary playlist and daily playlist. The difference is that the daily playlist is loaded automatically at an assigned day and time, while the ordinary playlist should be loaded manually.

Daily playlists require specific naming structure in order to be played on the desired date and time automatically. The structure is: YYYY_MM_DD_HH_MM_SS, where YYYY stands for year, MM-month, DD-date, HH-hour, MM-minutes and SS-seconds.

For example, if the name of the playlist is “2011_11_20_14_00_00.ply”, it will be loaded exactly on November 20th, 2011 at 14.00 h (2.00 pm).

The X-Pert Playout playlist contains video clips and events (commands), which are described in details further in this chapter.
