The List feature (previously known as "Video List") can be used to create a playlist of video and audio files.

The Randomise button can be used to shuffle the list (useful for example when playing a set of music videos for example)

M3U files are supported which can contain a combination of video and audio filenames.

List Control

To switch between items with the playlist, right click the preview area of the input and left click the item from the dropdown list.

Edit Items

Click Edit Items in the right click menu to open up the List Editing Window

Automatically Play Next Item

Uncheck the "Automatically Play Next Item" checkbox to stop automatic playback of the next item in the list. This option is checked by default.


Click the Add button to add one or more items to the list.

Files can also be dragged and dropped into the Edit - List window


Click Edit to change the name of the selected item

Click Remove to remove one or more items from the list. There must be at least one active item in the List at all times

Note: These options do not change the underlying files, so files will not be deleted or renamed.


Randomise the order of items in the list


Export the current List as an M3U file


A list item can be disabled by clicking the checkbox. When disabled the item will be skipped during playback.

Up/Down Arrows

The up and down arrows can be used to move the selected item up or down in the list.

List Duration

If supported by the video or audio format, vMix will display a Total Time Remaining for the entire List.

In the screenshot below, Clip 1 is 21 minutes and 27 seconds in length and there is 1 hour, 4 minutes and 22 seconds remaining.
