Object Description
playItem

Represents an individual media file in a playList collection.

Remarks

Some media file formats contain several individual media files, such as an MPEG-Layer 3 (MP3) playlist that contains several MP3 files. This collection provides access to those individual media files.

The playList collection is available only while the parent element is active on the timeline. When the parent element's timeline ends, this collection is no longer available.

Example

This example demonstrates how to retrieve a collection of playItem objects using the playList collection.
