Playlists

    A Playlist is an embedded Collection or list of models.

    Creating a Playlist from a Collection

    https://sketchfab.com/playlists/embed?collection=8061ccceab1f44cf997cfca56c429eb9

    To get the iframe embed code, go to the collection page and click Embed.

    Sketchfab 3d model collection page

    Click Show options to set the iframe size and enable Autostart.

    Sketchfab 3d model collection playlist embed

    By default, the models will be sorted chronologically by publish date. The order can be changed by adding the sort_by parameter to the src URL:

    • -like_count
    • like_count
    • -view_count
    • view_count
    • -published_at
    • published_at

    For example: https://sketchfab.com/playlists/embed?collection=8061ccceab1f44cf997cfca56c429eb9&sort_by=-like_count

    You can use the oEmbed API endpoint to programmatically get embed codes and other information.

    Creating a Playlist from a list of models

    Playlists can also be created from arbitrary model IDs, like this:

    https://sketchfab.com/playlists/embed?models=46b6d0548ee046fd84f92fe12ac2b70e+7ad77ffcaee6407687d0a80efb3d2363

    By default, these models will be sorted in the order you place the model IDs.

    This is currently the only way to embed private models in a playlist.

      Looks like it's back up again, good work! Do you think it will be a stable feature or still quite experimental?

      Oh dear James, playlists out of action again? We might have to think of a different approach to putting models on our front page. Hope it's and easy fix.

      Looks nice, is it wordpress only or is there any other way to use this on any site, some javascript and html, etc?

      We like the sketchfab playlists though, but they're a bit wobbly lately ;)

      Yes, he will develop a lib and an api for getting all the mosels IDS and instantiate the sketchfab player.

      Hi @James 

      How can I scale up the THUMBNAILS and place them on the right side of viewer?

      Hi @QMLX 

      You would need to do it yourself with HTML, maybe using a combination of the Viewer API and oEmbed: https://sketchfab.com/developers

      Is there a way to access all my model id's at an api end point? Using HTML and Javascript.

      Hello!

      Quick question about Playlists... is there anyway of making the object descriptions visible? We have descriptions of all our objects, but as far as I can see, they don't display (or even have a 'click to see description') option?

      Any clues?
