The Playlist Search Module provides searchable playlists for YouTube, thePlatform, Brightcove VideoCloud, Wistia, Vimeo and Kaltura linked accounts. The embed code for the Playlist Search Module will include your video player, interactive transcript and searchable playlist. Once the Playlist Search Module is live on your webpage and more closed captioning requests are made via a supported integration, upon completion of the transcription process the videos and transcripts will then be added automatically to the module. Please note though that these videos and transcripts will then be viewable to anyone with access to the Playlist Search Module's webpage

- One video must have been submitted for transcription / closed captioning via Brightcove, Youtube, Kaltura integration (with postback captions enabled) transcribed in your linked account to access an embed code for the playlist.
