Disable seeking

I'm new to the platform, so bear with me. I'm trying to figure out how to disable seeking and play/pause while keeping the ability to turn on/off captions.

I'm currently embedding my videos with the "JavaScript" style.

From reading the documentation, it seems like I could achieve this by customizing the skin, but I don't see where I can upload a custom skin. When creating a player, I can only choose one of the pre-existing skins.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, there.

There is no built-in functionality to disable the player’s ability to seek through the content. You can possibly remove the appearance of the progress slider using CSS, but this is not a great solution, especially on mobile where the browser’s controls take over for ours, and would allow the user to seek again.

If you want to take a look at the CSS classes that would allow you to do this, you can check out our CSS Class Reference.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
