Chapters with JSON


I've been working with my new JW Player setup and are going to use chapters through our CMS-tool. I want to use chapters via my JSON-object since chapters can change "on-the-fly". Today I can only find a solution using .vtt-files, this is not going to work for me... I need to get and show chapters with JSON, is this possible? And how?

Best regards,

Hello Jesper,

Nothing really comes to mind, since our chapter markers are populated with vtt files. What are you trying to build? Perhaps CSS can help apply markers onto the controlbar?

Here are all the CSS Skinning docs:

I have been experimenting with using BlobURLs to create the WEBVTT file on the fly via javascript, then passing that into the player.

The proof of concept seems to work
