Multiple kind: chapters


Is it possible to have multiple chapters files ? Such has :


If so, is it possible to click for instance a link, and decide which chapter file is going to load ?
For example, the default file is chapters-1.txt. Video starts to play. I click a link and chapters-2.txt loads while the video is still running.

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 built-in functionality that would allow to you to have multiple chapter tracks embedded. The only solution I can think of for you would be to have the following happen when someone chooses to change the chapters track:

1. Use .getPosition() to register the the current position of playback and assign it to a variable.
2. Use .load() to load a new playlist with the same video file, but different chapters track.
3. Use .play() to start playback of the content.
4. Listen for .on(‘play’) and with a callback to use .seek(x), where x is the variable that you assigned the value of .getPosition() to in step 1.

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

Thank you!
