Preloading without spinner

I was looking at the demo

What I want to achieve is something similar but on startup (loading the page) all my my videos are ready to be played at a specific seek point. So as in the demo you have one player I was thinking of having several jwplayers but only one visible. So when I click on one of the videos it switches to the pre-seeked video and plays straight away without any buffering.

I have built a demo using youtube's javascript API and the issue I have is on loading where it takes a long time. However after the loading time, the switching is seamless.

Is it possible to have lower loading times with Jwplayer (i.e. a number of instances ready) or is there a better way to do this?

Hi there,

While what you are looking to do should be possible, assisting with doing so would be outside of the scope of support we can provide. With that being said, I would like to stress what you have already said that loading multiple players would cause a large increase in your page’s loading time which could affect other elements on your page. If loading is a concern for you, I would recommend looking into preloading your content.

Thank you.
