I am not able to reproduce this behavior on my side in JW Player 7.3.6. The control bar disappears a few seconds after I last moved the mouse.

Have you tested with a page without any external Javascript or CSS?

The problem also happen when I configure the player,

The problem Only happen when I use Chrome or Opera, Edge or Firefox not have this problem.

I use the last JW player version.

Do you have a link where I can test older version?

Can you provide a link to a test page where I can reproduce this? Please see my notes at for more details on what we like to see in a reproduction page.

You can also test in a JW Player preview page by loading the <iframe> source URL directly in your browser. It should load the video on a page with only a gray background and the video title.

You can change a cloud-hosted player to the “previous” release channel by setting the release_channel parameter using our Javascript API’s /players/update endpoint. Please see for more details.
