Embedr - Create Video Playlists and Widgets

Embedr let’s you take your favorite videos from all over the web and make them into a playlist. It’s compatible with most of the top video sites like YouTube, MySpace, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and Blip.Tv. (Full list)

The site is clean and simple to use, giving you two ways to build a playlist; Standard Playlist or Smart Playlist. You can add up to 100 videos to a standard playlist and 50 to a smart playlist.

To build a Standard Playlist, videos are added one at a time, simply enter the URL or Embed code from the video’s location, for example a YouTube page.

You can build a Smart Playlist (YouTube only) by searching for keywords or by YouTube Username. The content in smart playlists changes dynamically as new videos are found. Select the number of videos you want to show in the playlist, and sort by Relevance, Published Date, View Count or Rating.

Embedr lets you create multiple playlists. You can easily change the order of videos by dragging them into position. You can also edit various parameters before and after you create a playlist. This is ideal for building a pool of content associated with your user profile.

Once you’ve created a playlist you have a ready made widget that you can customize and embed on webpages. The width of the widget determines it’s height proportionately. It’s simple and very effective, making it a breeze to create and distribute video content in an attractive and functional format.

I built the Guitar Players Spotlight above using a standard playlist from hand-picked sources on YouTube. Here’s my Embedr Profile
