If video is paused, pause after seek

Hello! I've been trying to get this to work, but so far have had no luck. When a video is paused and user seeks (e.g, moving the thumb to rewind/fast-forward on the seek bar) how can I keep the video paused instead of playing automatically when the seek event is completed?

You might be able to do something that checks for the player state prior to seeking, and then pauses after an onSeek event.
You can see some available options here:

Let me know if this helps!

I've tried that, actually! The issue I keep running into is that I can pause like I want to (by using _this.pause() in , but then for some strange reason when I click on the seek bar the first time the video jumps to the time in the video like it's supposed to, but the player bar and thumb don't update to the correct time. When I double click that seems to resolve the issue, but I'd rather this work the first time. :)

Interesting… do you have a link to where this is being set up?
