Unable to load the player within a chrome extension

When loading self hosted JWPlayer within a chrome extension (the jwplayer.js is included in the extension package), it does'nt work. I think it's because of this request "//" : as the protocol in a chrome extension is chrome-extension, jwplayer is trying to load chrome-extension://
How can we remove this call or update anything ?

Hi, there.

My name is Alex and I am one of the Support Engineers at JW Player. I will be more than happy to assist you with your questions.

There is no way to disable our player from making the call to ping.gif. Also, I have not heard of anyone that has embedded our player in a Chrome Extension, so I’m not sure how much support we can provide for this. However, I would be curious to see what would happen if you tried to embed JW Player 7, which is the latest version of our player.

Please let me know. Thanks.
