We have a few updates today!


As of early 2019 we deprecated our Playlist functionality - existing playlists would continue to work, but no new playlists could be created.

We are discontinuing engineering support as well - no updates, improvements, or fixes will be released for Playlists, and remaining navigation to the feature is removed.

Due to this deprecation, while we expect existing Playlists will still largely function, realistically Playlists can break or stop working entirely at any time - we strongly recommend you implement an alternative, such as our Channels feature or our Embed Links [https://wistia.com/support/developers/embed-links].

Password Protect

Password protect [https://wistia.com/support/customizing/password-protection] has gotten a little facelift while we refactored some code! It still has all of the functionality you know and love, but the text input and button looks a little fresher.

Channel Popover Embed Button Copy

When we released our Podcast features late 2020, we introduced Audio to the Channel mix. As a result, some copy around our embeds and in-app needed to be updated to be less video-specific and more flexible.

We’ve recently updated our Channel popover embed [https://wistia.com/support/embed-and-share/channel-embeds#popover] button copy from “x Videos” where x was the number of published episodes, to “Open” which we feel is applicable regardless of the contents of your Channels and is a clear, direct call to action for your audience.
