media_library_show_video_playlist filter-hookWP 4.7.4

Allows showing or hiding the "Create Video Playlist" button in the media library.

By default, the "Create Video Playlist" button will always be shown in the media library. If this filter returns null, a query will be run to determine whether the media library contains any video items. This was the default behavior prior to version 4.8.0, but this query is expensive for large media libraries.

Usage

add_filter( 'media_library_show_video_playlist', 'wp_kama_media_library_show_video_playlist_filter' );

/**
 * Function for `media_library_show_video_playlist` filter-hook.
 * 
 * @param bool|null $show Whether to show the button, or `null` to decide based on whether any video files exist in the media library.
 *
 * @return bool|null
 */
function wp_kama_media_library_show_video_playlist_filter( $show ){

	// filter...
	return $show;
}
$show(true|false|null)
Whether to show the button, or null to decide based on whether any video files exist in the media library.

Changelog
