ProPresenter 5 Tutorials: Folders, Media organization, and the mistake I made

I’ve already recorded a tutorial on organizing media in ProPresenter 5. Unfortunately, the guy who recorded that (me) was dead wrong on one important thing: you don’t put media directly into folders to organize it (and I told you to do just that).

Instead, you can organize media playlists and hot folders by putting them into a folder. If you try and put media in a folder directly, you’ll find that it moves when you quit ProPresenter and come back.

For me, it makes sense to think of a media playlist as a folder, just like a hot folder and a “folder” as a group of folders.

For more clarity, watch the video.
