When it comes to sharing your content with others, the more organized you are, the better. Overall, content placed into folders is easier to manage and secure than individual content files in the library.
Additionally, with a folder or playlist you can:
Embed the content from a folder or playlist on your own webpage or blog using the Screencast.com MediaRoll, our embed widget. Any time you add content to your folder or playlist, the MediaRoll automatically updates.
Use RSS to notify your viewers when you update a folder or playlist; viewers do not need to check the site and you don’t need to send email to inform them of content changes. They maintain control of their RSS feeds and can "unsubscribe" at any time.
Apply privacy: public, password protected, hidden or require an authenticated account (requires an invitation to view).
When organizing your content, you have three options: individual files in the library, folders, and playlists.
Individual Content File
Individual content files located in the library are always available to view. Anyone who can find your library can view your content. You cannot secure individual files in the library.
Folders act just like folders on your desktop; you place content inside a folder to group files together in one place.
You can only add a piece of content to one folder.
When sharing a folder, you share all the content in the folder.
Embed public folders on your own Web page or blog using the Screencast.com MediaRoll.
Use a playlist to share a collection of content gathered from different folders of your library.
You can add a piece of content to multiple playlists.
When sharing a playlist, you share all the content in the playlist.
Embed public and hidden playlists on your own Web page or blog using the Screencast.com MediaRoll.
