Hi Community, my first post.
(apologies for a double post, yesterday I posted this as a comment to the "Video Item is being removed" thread but maybe as a new topic it will get a quicker response)

I have about a dozen existing presentations that run on different screens, with up to 16 short video items each, made with the Classic editor. Can I add a new video to the presentations with the new Video Widget using the new editor, and keep the current content running, 
or do I have to rebuild them completely with the new editor & widget?

Yes you can add new Videos from the new Editor without impacting your existing instances of Video Item. When you open the Presentation, just select "Cancel" when you see the prompt warning you about legacy content and whether or not you want to edit in Classic Editor.

Thanks!
