JWPlayer 7.5 oncomplete change to -1 second and don't show image

Hello everyone,

I have a video playing and in the end, when it's all through and on state "complete" I would like it to go back 1 second and stop there - not showing the poster, just the video at this point.
I have tried

on('time', function(timing) {
var currentPosition = timing.position;
var lengthOfVideo = timing.duration;

if((currentPosition >= lengthOfVideo-1 && currentPosition < lengthOfVideo))
__globalCounter = 1;
__globalTiming = timing;
__globalComplete = true;

with a check in

on('complete', function() {
if (__globalComplete)

This ends in an infinite loop and I really have no idea why - I am still new to this whole topic though. So every help would be appreciated :)

I did it with converting the timing into floats, and instead of using on('complete') I simply paused the video inside the on('time') event when the if statement is true. Hiding the controls and fake a "complete" status that way.
Not very nice, but it's doing its job.

Hi Nat, when you use ‘time’ that event will fire continually while your stream plays. You will need to use ‘once’ to only have ‘time’ fire one time. Hope this helps.
