Thanks for software


The following options still generate output but it's not correct:

playlist: Name or id of the playlist that contains the video
playlist_index: Index of the video in the playlist padded with leading zeros according to the total length of the playlist
playlist_id: Playlist identifier
playlist_title: Playlist title

For example, despite a channel/user having >1 playlist, use of playlist will only generate a single value (i.e. "Uploads from [channel/user]"). This indicates to me either a) I'm not using the option correctly or b) playlists are being ignored.

Let me know if you have any issues - happy to help

Hope this is clear/useful

Hope to hear back

Yours faithfully
