I want to share my playlist with others who click on a link from another cloud application.

However, when I do this, the Viewer can navigate up the tree and see all my files (please see attached image).
I have tried this with both public and non-public settings.
Is there a way to share the link on a web page without the Screencast destination player giving the Viewer the ability to navigate up the tree and see all our files?

If the folder that the content is in is set to hidden they will not be able to see the contents of the folder. The links in your screenshot will still be shown, but users will get the 404 page when trying to view it. Keep in mind that if you are logged in with your account this is not the behavior that you will see, since you are the owner of the content. You can verify this behavior by viewing the page in an incognito/private browsing session or by logging out first and then clicking the link.

Pro users have the ability to create templates for their folders which gives them control of whether to show the breadcrumbs bar (breadcrumbs are the links you are showing in your screenshot), but it's for aesthetics only and the functionality of those links are the same regardless of a Pro or Free account.

Let me know if this clarifies things for you!
