Play/Pause buttons without controls on player 7


For an e-learning I like to display only the play and pause buttons. So the users can only play or pause and cannot go through the video using the controls bar.

I found this article, where Ler_Sam found a solution himself. Unfortunately he does not describe how he managed to do this completely:

Is there already an easy way to do this?

By the way, Vimeo already has this function to only show play and pause button.

Thanks in advance!

This might require a bit of knowledge around CSS but maybe tapping into the class/group for that icon set and assigning a style.display=none would hide the images so the user is not allowed to click the buttons. You could potentially attach this to a jwplayer().on(‘firstFrame’) event. Although these are simply suggestions you can find our full CSS/Skinning writeup here which goes into greater detail about this:
