    • To give another example:  you may come across a video that has a longer URL
      1. Copy the text after the FIRST '=' sign, all the way to the letter before the '&' symbol:
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCdLJ9zOlm0&index=2&list=PLgVW4hDBH0pe-nM-OexgATjnj_tzNKk6q

  8. Any new items will be added to the very bottom of your playlist:
    • Within the title you gave the youtube video, you can identify the youtube video ID (this will help to ensure you don't add the same youtube video twice)!

    • You can reorder the video within your playlist, or use the "Actions" drop down to complete the following:
      • Play 
        Play this item directly from your playlist on the TV connected to the ADA TV Stick.  Once this item has played, it will then revert back to the next item that was going to play (before you chose to manually play this media item).  
      • Preview
        Preview the item directly in your browser, from here you can set the volume, start and stop times.
      • Remove
        Remove the item in your playlist.  This will move the item to your "Archived" section, a list located under your active playlist section.  You can "Recover" this item at anytime.
