On setup - show controls when playlist is active

This is a must do for the team. I have mentioned it before and I hope it wasn't forgotten.
When there is a playlist active, the player displays the first item and you have to play this item before you even have a clue that there is a playlist,
This must change, it is not acceptable user experience
Please see if this can be updated asap.
Thanks so much.

Thanks Mark. This is good feedback, it was not forgotten. Expect it in a 7.1.x release coming up in the next few weeks.

My VPL for JW Player plugin resolves this.

Along with offering the following additional features:

> Makes the Visual Playlist responsive - with configurable width, height and margin options at flexible player sizes
> Removes the scrollbar when not needed
> Ability to include descriptions within the Visual Playlist
> Ability to customise the Visual Playlist title (change it from "PLAYLIST")
> When a player has a playlist, and the Visual Playlist is enabled, the controlbar will be visible by default - this can also be configured.
