Is there a way to show a clip from a larger video?

I know that JWPlayer supports time offsets to start video playback at a certain point, but is there any way to have it playback a portion of a longer video clip? For example, if it is a 30 minute video, is there a way to only play starting at 2 minutes in and ending at 5 minutes in? Perhaps there is a way to use Chapters to do this or some other feature? Thanks.

This could be achieved with our API, but the scrub bar will still show the full duration of the video. You could try listening to the playback time using onTime and then stop playback if the user reaches a point outside of your range:
