Is it possible to load a player with no initial video?

We are looking to replace our existing video player in our e-learning templates.

One template has a video player and several options for a user to click, clicking a link plays a video. This part is obviously possible using the playlist functionality.

The problem is we don't want a default video loading, it is up to the user to select one.

The only way I could think to get around this is to have a blank video/loading image and use that to initialise the player?

Many thanks,

Hi Paul,

Yes, you must provide a blank.mp4 video, as the player cannot be loaded without the `file` parameter.

Best Regards,
