I want to hide control bar in mobile, but keep play button (JW hosted)

I'm using JW hosting to play my videos. For mobile devices, I want to HIDE the control bar. However, when I set it to hide the controls, there's no way for the viewer to hit a 'play' button and start the video. I want to hide the control bar so that the viewer can't jump around the video, but I *do* want a play button to first appear so that the viewer can at least *start* the video. Is this possible to set up in the JW hosting control area?

You could add this style tag to the head of your HTML document:
display: none !important;

that worked, thanks! I actually had tried that but had left out the !important tag, so it didn't work before. Again, thanks!
