Published / Unpublished Toggle Feature

Are there any plans on your roadmap to include a published / unpublished toggle? It seems like this would be a fairly basic feature for a content publishing platform, and would greatly help us with our implementations.

This feature is currently on the roadmap. While we wait for it to be implemented, a possible solution is to include a “published” tag on your videos and then use a dynamic playlist. You could also add metadata to each video indicating the status. The next step would be to check to make sure the video was “published” before including it on a page. The workflow would be to load the playlist, remove any unpublished videos from the playlist, then reload the player with the edited playlist.

That's exactly what we're doing; unfortunately there are some edge cases, especially when it comes to pagination, that we're running into a problem.

Thanks for the update on the roadmap!
