Passing custom text to player

We have a requirement that we generate some custom text at pageload time and display it overlayed on the video. However, I want to ensure that the overlay can't be bypassed client-side (ex: disable a css class). Is there a way with the jwplayer package to pass it a custom string (ideally styled) and have jwplayer embed it on top of the screen? I understand that ultimately this will be bypass-able, but we want to make it difficult to do.

Hi, Ben.

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 built-in functionality to allow you to present an overlay on top of the player and even if there was, the entire interface of the player is comprised of CSS, so it would be just as bypassable as anything custom that you come up with.

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

Thank you!
