JW6 Captions - Language change with link


We are still using JW6. I was wondering if it was possible to have a hyperlink on the page that changes the VTT file loaded in the player. Currently we have a player setup with multiple languages, but I'd like to make a link for the user to click to select their language. I am afraid they won't find the navigation bar with the captions selectable.

Also, is it possible to add a query string to a link and have it tell JWPlayer which language to load as the default?

Thank you!

Yes, you can create an HTML button or link to call jwplayer().setCurrentCaptions(index)

Please see for more details.

You could also potentially pass a URL parameter, parse it, and then make the same setCurrentCaptions() call on your page.
