Enabling Captions and Quality buttons in player


We are currently embedding a video player through code which loads one of the playlists we have in JW Platform:

var playerInstance = jwplayer("cover");
"playlist": ""

This loads the player but without the Settings button (for video quality) and the Captions button.

I have seen examples where tracks are added to each playlist item, but in this case all playlist items are set as a .rss link.

How can I enable captions (our video has 2 VTT tracks) and quality in this scenario?

The RSS feed will limit you to one stream quality and will not include caption files. You will want to use the JSON feed instead in order to have those options available in your player configuration.
