First Arriving's integration with YouTube is a great way to get training videos, messages from leadership, and other video content front and center to personnel.


Features Include:

  • Complete control of videos that show on your dashboards
  • Flexibility of when the videos will play
  • Alarms will still take priority.  Video will pause for duration of the alarm and then automatically start once alarm duration has ended.  


What We Need:

  • You'll need an YouTube account
  • Unlisted or Public Playlist URL 
  • Time of day to schedule the videos to play
  • Duration of how long you want videos to play


How to Create a YouTube playlist :


  • Login to your account at youtube.com
  • Click user on top-right of window and select "Your Channel"

  • There should be a blue button that says "Customize Channel"

  • Click on Playlists, the 3rd option.

  • Click +New Playlist to create a new one

  • You can now name it.  We suggest naming it something like "First Arriving Playlist" so that you know it will be used for your dashboards.

**MAKE SURE THAT YOU SELECT EITHER PUBLIC OR UNLISTED IN THE DROP-DOWN MENU.  IF YOU DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO BE ABLE TO FIND THE PLAYLIST OR VIDEOS, SELECT "UNLISTED." **


  • You can now upload your own videos to the newly created playlist.


**MAKE SURE THAT YOU SELECT EITHER PUBLIC OR UNLISTED FOR THE VIDEOS WITHIN THE PLAYLIST!  IF YOU DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO BE ABLE TO FIND THE VIDEOS, SELECT "UNLISTED." **
