Presto Player 2.0 FAQs

Do playlists work on mobile?

Yes, playlists do work on mobile. They are fully responsive and optimized for mobile devices. When the screen width is small, the playlist will be displayed below the video instead of to the right. All of the features, such as the Netflix end screen experience keep working as usual.

What’s the difference between Presto Player and the Elementor playlist widget?

The main difference between Presto Player and the Elementor playlist widget is advanced functionality. The Elementor playlist widget is great when it comes to create playlists with a high level of visual customization. It does lack the advanced functionality such as video chapter support, analytics and reports, or email opt-in gates though.

Can I use Playlists with Elementor?

Yes, you can use Presto Player playlists with Elementor using a shortcode that you can embed anywhere.

How is Presto Player playlists different from other course plugins?

Presto Player playlists differ from other course plugins because they enhance the viewer experience and integrate with existing solutions without the hassle of having to configure a full LMS.

It can also be easily used as a lightweight solution for other purposes not focused on online training, such as for testimonials and video portfolios.
