Synchronous Media Playback / Control

I am currently using the free tier of JWPlayer and am loving it so far. However there is one feature that is very important to me, and that is the ability for one user, or "viewer", of a video stream to stop/pause the video stream for all users who are currently viewing the video stream.

Example: Say there are two users in two different locations watching a video stream. User 1 needs to step away, so User 1 pauses the video stream which also pauses the video stream for User 2 who is watching.

Is this possible in the free tier? If so, how? Thanks!

Free users are not limited in their usage of the javascript API or platform api to build features such as the one you are describing that do not exist as built-in functionality.

We don’t provide custom development so I’m afraid I don’t have any code examples for your describes use-case.
