How to Create a MAX Player

What is a MAX Player?

Similar to Semantic Placements in Playlists, the MAX Player leverages our Semantic content analyzing capabilities to scan the text and metadata of the web page it is embedded in to find contextually relevant videos for playback.

Note: The MAX Player has the Semantic matching capability on the Player level opposed to Playlists. For further details, please see What is a Semantic Placement?
